Djokovic hails family after Shanghai win

Shanghai Masters: Novak Djokovic beats Borna Coric to extend winning run

Djokovic's 6-3, 6-4 defeat of Borna Coric, the 21-year-old Croatian, in today's final was his 18th consecutive victory.

It's a remarkable fall from grace for the 20-time Major victor.

Yastremska started the second set in much the same style, immediately breaking Wang with a forehand victor.

And few would now bet against the Wimbledon and Flushing Meadows champion with the ATP Finals in London approaching, his ruthless efficiency having sapped Coric's energy as the final wore on.

Coric was playing in his first final at a Masters 1000 tournament and his inexperience on the big stage told as Djokovic quickly stamped his authority on the match. "It took me a long time to start feeling comfortable and confident on the court again", Djokovic said.

Roger Federer of Switzerland returns a shot to Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland during Day 7 of the Western and Southern Open at the Lindner Family Tennis Center on August 17, 2018 in Mason, Ohio.

If the two players meet in the final, the equation is simple: the victor takes it all.


The Serb, who had elbow surgery in February but recovered to win Wimbledon and then the US Open last month, said: "Being number two after this tournament is also a great achievement, considering the first four, five months of the year and considering I had the surgery". That's was I think is the best for me.

"I thought he was better, he had more chances than I had". I was not serving particularly well, but that's also because I think he was returning extremely well, so I was going for a little bit more. With his win over Coric in the Final, Djokovic now moves up a spot in the rankings to No. 2, taking the position away from Federer who falls to No. 3.

"Obviously the last three, four months have been terrific for me", Djokovic added.

"This was definitely one of the best service weeks that I've had in my career", Djokovic said.

Celebrating his 1,000th match in style, the 14-time Grand Slam victor Djokovic was clinical against a shell-shocked Zverev.

Coric, who has only two career titles, has now beaten Federer twice - the previous time was in the final at Halle this year.
