Share
Djokovic has regained the consistency he struggled to find earlier this year

Novak Djokovic continued his scintillating run of form as he breezed past Croatian Borna Coric 6-3 6-4 to win the Shanghai Masters title for the fourth time on Sunday.

Awaiting Coric in the final is second seed Djokovoic after the three-time Shanghai Masters victor powered past fourth seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany 6-2, 6-1 earlier in the day.

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.

Serbia's Djokovic broke the 19th-ranked Coric - his good friend and sometime-training partner - in the sixth game of the first set on the way to another no-nonsense victory. He also fought back when Djokovic held three championship points at 5-3 to claim another game. Djokovic's class outshone Coric eventually though, with the Serb going on to win his 26 straight set to win his fourth title of 2018.

"Maybe I was Chinese in the past life", said Djokovic, smiling, in explaining impressive record in the country.

"Absolutely I did prove to myself that I can beat the best players again and that I can play good tennis", Coric said.

"And where I was about four months ago and where I am today is quite an extreme opposite".

"In the offseason I made a decision to change my whole team". For this indicator, the 31-year-old Serb is ahead of only the current leader of the world rankings Rafael Nadal, whose 33 title.

He has been particularly dominant on his serve and did not drop a single service game in Shanghai.

Finally, the Serbian managed to win the tenth game and the set against an aggressive Coric, who has been the breakout star of the tournament, especially after defeating Federer 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday.

Last year, Coric had fallen outside the top 50.
