Novak Djokovic Wins Fourth Shanghai Masters, Moves Up to World No. 2
ATP World Tour– (October 14, 2018) Novak Djokovic continued his pursuit of the No. 1 ATP Ranking, defeating Borna Coric 6-3, 6-4 on Sunday to capture a record fourth Rolex Shanghai Masters title.
The Serbian, who will climb to World No. 2 on Monday, has now won 18 consecutive matches including titles at the Western & Southern Open and the US Open. With his 32nd ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy in hand, Djokovic moves to within 215 points of World No. 1 Rafael Nadal.
“It’s phenomenal. I’m very proud of it,” Djokovic said. “Obviously the last three, four months have been terrific for me. Not many holes in the game in general, especially this week. Everything worked perfectly.”
“This was definitely one of the best service weeks that I’ve had in my career,” Djokovic said. He did not have his serve broken throughout the tournament.
“I was saying before that I have never played on faster courts here in Shanghai, so this year more than ever I needed a lot of success with the first serves in.”
Djokovic is now 11-0 in finals played in China.
