Serbia's Novak Djokovic celebrates beating Croatia's Borna Coric in their men's final singles match at the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament in Shanghai on October 14, 2018. "I think I can be very happy with my level of play this week".

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

The Serb, who had elbow surgery in February but recovered to win Wimbledon and then the US Open last month, said: "Being number two after this tournament is also a great achievement, considering the first four, five months of the year and considering I had the surgery". 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. The fourth seed, who is yet to win a Grand Slam despite his undoubted talent, angrily threw his racquet at the start of the second set as Djokovic ramped up the pressure.

"I am just very pleased with that part of my game and with the overall results".

In an evenly matched first set, three forehand errors from Ćorić handed Djoković the first break of the match in the sixth game and it would be enough for him to take the first set in 38 minutes 6-3. "It's awesome. I need to take only positives from this week". "I'm sure that it hasn't happened too many times if it did".

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

"It was really tough", Coric said. "I've always played him when he's playing well, but I'll hope I can take it to him". "I'm in semifinals now, and I obviously don't want to be satisfied just yet". Federer and Nadal both had 17-match winning streaks during the year.

There was no let-up, though, and a sublime volley had Djokovic cupping an ear to the crowd as Coric failed to break back, the contest finally settled as the 14-time grand slam victor served out the championship.

The rally ended with Coric hitting a down-the-line backhand victor that Djokovic had no chance of retrieving.
