Djokovic beats Coric to win Shanghai Masters crown

Majestic Djokovic marches on in Shanghai

However, he ran into an unstoppable Djokovic, who wrapped up a straight-sets victory for his 18th win on the trot and his 72nd career title.

On Saturday, in Shanghai, Djokovic said he would meet Gerard Pique in order to reach a compromise and try to combine the ATP World Team Cup and the newly launched Davis Cup. 'It's great to have a superstar in football, you know, trying to do something different and innovative in our sport, ' said the Serb.

The 20-times Grand Slam victor has produced a series of lacklustre performances in Shanghai, his first tournament since suffering a shock fourth-round defeat by John Millman at the U.S. Open last month. He previously shared the record of winning three Shanghai titles with Andy Murray.

Djokovic, who has been particularly dominant on his serve, not dropping one service game in Shanghai, said: "I think you're seeing the new Novak".

"I was happy to get out in two", Federer said.

"I couldn't play much better today, to be honest".

Hazard: I want to work with Mourinho again
"I was totally out of shape at the start of the season, I remembered that lesson this summer - four weeks after the World Cup I was back in training at Chelsea ".

"I'm just cherishing that achievement and every moment spent on the court". "I'm feeling good on the court". I think it was a really good week for me, from basically me thinking on Monday morning I'm going to fly out on Monday evening after my first match [against Stan Wawrinka] to playing my first Masters 1000 final.

"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 second set followed a similar pattern and, while Coric improved, he was unable to deny Djokovic a fourth Shanghai Masters title.

Coric didn't offer Federer a break point opportunity, while managing to break Federer's serve in the opening game of both sets.

This was a fourth Shanghai crown for Djokovic and he is homing in on a return to number one, having fallen as low as 22nd in May as he struggled following elbow surgery in February.

He is on a 17-match winning streak and is 26-1 in matches played since the start of Wimbledon. I faced only two, maybe three break points in the entire week.
