Novak Djokovic outclasses Borna Coric to claim fourth Shanghai Masters title

The 14-time Grand Slam victor spoke to Xinhua in an exclusive interview after the match, saying that the last three or four months have been "phenomenal", and his family has helped him to overcome adversity after the lackluster start to the season.

Shanghai: The "new" Novak Djokovic warned that he was gunning for Rafael Nadal's world number one ranking after winning the Shanghai Masters with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Borna Coric on Sunday.

"Federer used to be the best mover but now Djokovic is moving exceptionally well".

The second set followed a similar pattern and, while Coric improved, he was unable to deny Djokovic a fourth Shanghai Masters title. "I'm sure that it hasn't happened too many times if it did".

"I'm cherishing every moment of it", he told the crowd, calling Shanghai "a special place" to him.

"I felt even if I was serving a little bit better, he'd still return my serves, so there is nothing I can do". I love watching him play. No. 13 Kyle Edmund, +2 The Briton reached his second Masters 1000 quarter-final, five months on from his first at the Mutua Madrid Open (l.to Shapovalov), losing to Zverev in Shanghai. Coric also beat Roger Federer in June for the Gerry Weber Open title in Halle.

"A launch [of a rocket] from the Gaza Strip aimed at hitting the Israeli territory has been registered", the statement said . Netanyahu met with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and other senior security officials to assess the situation.

Coric described Djokovic as a close friend. "This was definitely one of the best service weeks that I've had in my career", Djokovic, who did not drop his serve during the tournament, said.

Nadal will remain on top if the two players fall in the same round or if he goes deeper than the Serbian.

He also dispensed of three-time Grand Slam victor and Federer's fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka in his opening match.

The 31-year-old is in imperious form and this was his 17th ATP victory in a row, as he taught the rising German star a lesson.

Djokovic will replace Roger Federer as world number two on Monday after claiming a third successive title and is only 35 points behind Nadal. "Obviously the last three, four months have been terrific for me". He started with a career-best 17-0 for the season (21-0 if you count the Hopman Cup wins), with wins in Melbourne and Rotterdam and a loss in the final of Indian Wells, where he held match points on serve in the deciding set.

The Wimbledon champion ramped up the pressure in the second set which issued more punishment. "I didn't lose to anyone that bad", said Zverev, who committed 24 unforced errors.
