Djokovic wins a record 4th Shanghai Masters

Djokovic wins a record 4th Shanghai Masters

And even though Federer provided some early resistance in Coric's match-winning service, the 20-time grand-slam champion could not find a breakthrough to survive.

"He had more punch on the ball".

Djokovic, who beat South African Kevin Anderson 7-6 6-3 to reach the last four, knows a fourth Shanghai title would help him trim Rafa Nadal's lead at the top of the rankings.

Djokovic played his 1,000th career match against Zverev and holds an impressive 827-173 win-loss record. "I wouldn't be surprised, to be honest, with the way I feel here and the way I communicate and have relationship with the people".

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

"Today, really, I just came on the court with absolutely no pressure", Ćorić said.

"Like I said, I think I will try to take a decision on the clay towards maybe before - well let's say while I'm on vacation after London (ATP Finals November 11-18)".

In the second set Coric battled hard to stay in the game, saving three match points at 5-4, helped by a woeful smash from Djokovic.

Djokovic, who has returned to his brutal best this season with Grand Slam wins at Wimbledon and the U.S Open, will surpass Federer as world number two when the next edition of the ATP rankings are released on Monday.

In fact, both victors won having faced zero break points, and in fact, Coric created seven to Djokovic's six, although the former world number one did have a much higher points won figure in the match as he outclassed his German rival.

The third-ranked Djokovic taught Zverev a lesson.

An increasingly exasperated Zverev issued more punishment to his racquet at 3-1 down, earning a code violation and tossing the battered piece into the crowd.
