Djokovic cruises past Coric to win fourth Shanghai title

Shanghai Masters: Borna Ćorić beats Roger Federer to reach the final

Novak Djokovic celebrates after defeating Borna Coric in the men's singles final match in Shanghai Masters at Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center in Shanghai, China, Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018. "This is definitely a special place for me".

That was until, however, Djokovic made the breakthrough with a break in the seventh and ninth game to take the first set. "I don't think I'm beating anyone with that, to be honest", said the fourth seed.

Federer netted another backhand to concede a 4-2 deficit before Coric secured the first set with a ruthless sequence of serves.

The 37-year-old will next face Croatian power-hitter Borna Coric, who dumped Australia's Matthew Ebden out of the tournament 7-5 6-4.

"It's close to, or it's maybe equal to winning a Grand Slam, and I think other players will tell you the same thing, because just to be there, you obviously play well throughout the whole year".

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

"So I'm going to try to learn something".

Djokovic played his 1,000th career match against Zverev, and holds an impressive 827-173 win-loss record.

The bug meant that apps also had access to Profile fields that were shared with the user, but not marked as public. The company says it didn't find any evidence that any of the affected personal information was misused.

"I was in China for the last four weeks and I was trying really hard to learn Chinese, but I can not do it", Coric said in his runner-up speech.

"It was really tough, I need to say".

"So like this I know how to work on my fitness and tennis programme for those sort of four weeks in December".

So I'm happy about that.

From the beginning of their match, Federer's shot-making was below-par as he missed often on straightforward points or after long rallies, in which Coric was superb.

Zverev, who improved to 4-0 against Edmund, saved the one break point he faced and took advantage of the two break points he earned. In best of three matches on hard court where he's been priced in excess of 3.00, he's covered the +4.5 game line in six of seven matches since the start of 2017, and this line is what I like for tomorrow - we can get [2.06] on the young Croat to cover this line.

He is on a 17-match winning streak and is 26-1 in matches played since the start of Wimbledon.
