Djokovic cruises past Coric to win fourth Shanghai title

Novak Djokovic speaks about his unbelievable footwork

Djokovic climbed to number two in the ATP rankings with his semi-final defeat of Alexander Zverev and this victory 24 hours later was his 18th in a row.

Dropping just four points on his serve in the first set, Djokovic demolished Coric 6-3.

He would have to reach the final - playing five matches - at either tournament to overhaul his 215-point deficit to Nadal.

"He didn't give me many chances on his serve, and for me to stay with him, I should have maybe done a better job on my own serve".

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. "I don't think I'm beating anyone with that, to be honest", said the fourth seed.

He missed the second half of 2017 with elbow and off-court issues, but said he had adapted his game since the operation.

Djokovic said he could play Vienna or Basel, the week before Paris, in an effort to further rein in his rankings rival.

But the data reported Tuesday represents "a substantially larger number than in previous months this year", Messonnier said. In a press briefing Tuesday, officials talked about an increase in cases of acute flaccid myelitis ( AFM ) this year.

"Everything worked perfectly, I think this was one of the best serving weeks that I had".

The 21-year-old Zverev was off-colour most the match and bad tempered at times, angrily throwing his racquet at the start of the second set as Djokovic ramped up the pressure.

Coric, who is now ranked 19th, earned breaks in the opening games of both sets and held out all his services games to see off the Swiss master in 73 minutes. It's all very, very positive, for more than ten years that I have been coming to China.

"I found it and I'm just trying to hold on to it as long as I can". "I was playing good, really, I was really happy how I played", he said.

Garcia was down, 1-5, in the first set tiebreaker before she rebounded. He's won all 11 finals he's played in the country to secure four Shanghai trophies, six Beijing titles, and also the year-end Tennis Masters Cup in 2008.

In Tianjin, China, second-seeded Caroline Garcia won her first tournament of the year with a 7-6 (7), 6-3 win over top-seeded Karolina Pliskova in the Tianjin Open on Sunday.
