Djokovic wins in Shanghai, inches closer to top spot

Novak Djokovic speaks about his unbelievable footwork

The Serb - who went through the entire tournament without losing a service game - was too good for Borna Coric, needing a touch over 90 minutes to defeat him 6-3, 6-4 on the hard courts of the Chinese city.

Shanghai: Roger Federer admitted that he was lacking the "punch" of 13th-seeded Borna Coric after the Swiss great was turfed out of the Shanghai Masters semi-finals on Saturday.

Djokovic will be up to second in the world when the new rankings are released on Monday, but he is desperate to take injured Rafael Nadal's number one spot before the year is out.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion cruised through the first set, dropping just four points on his serve.

He had his first sniff of an opportunity with a break point in the sixth game of the second set, but second seed Djokovic survived when Coric again fired wide.

Victory means Djokovic's winning streak now stands at 18 matches as he closes to just 35 points behind world leader Nadal in the race to be No. 1 after the season-ending ATP Finals in London.

The win crowned Djokovic as the most decorated player in the tournament's 10-year history.

I think this is part of her spin strategy: Knowing how embarrassing this all looks for her, the only way out is to go on offense. She'd be guilty not only of having exaggerated extremely remote Native American ancestry , she'd be guilty of covering it up.

"I couldn't ask for a better scenario", Djokovic said.

Djokovic continues his superlative record in China, with this fourth Shanghai title being his 11th consecutive final victory.

"The success over the last three or four months has been terrific for me".

"But for me serve was always, so to say, a hidden weapon, the shot in the game that is obviously very important, "the" most important".

The Serb notched up a 32nd Masters 1000 title in Shanghai on Sunday, which also marks his fourth title of the year after Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and the US Open.

"In the offseason I made a decision to change my whole team". Djokovic kept his opponent on the move, mixing up his service placement and making forays to the net in order to extend his advantage. Emotionally they helped me a lot when I had the surgery.

The Frenchwoman's two titles at the end of last season earned her a spot into the year-end Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Finals in Singapore.
