       Highlights as Novak Djokovic continued his scintillating run of form as he breezed past Croatian Borna Coric

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.

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.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion had been imperious all week and yesterday was no different as he barely offered a sniff to the 19th-ranked Coric, his good friend and occasional training partner.

Coric then recovered from 3-0 down in the second set to earn a break point at 3-2 before saving three championship points to break Djokovic and make it 5-4. "It's phenomenal. I'm very proud of it", said Djokovic.

"I was looking up to him since I was really, really young", he said, calling the upset over Federer one of his best results.

'My God, it's scary' - jaw-dropping hurricane slams into Florida coast
A view of the eye of Hurricane Michael taken on October 10, 2018 from the International Space Station now orbiting Earth. So far, no counties along the devastated northwest Florida coast have reported deaths related to the storm.

The Serb extended his winning run to 18 matches in China, following up his successes at Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and US Open.

The 21-year-old looked to be becoming increasingly frustrated by Djokovic's ability to consistently return even the most measured shots, although he stood his ground in a marathon third game. He did not have his serve broken throughout the tournament.

The 32-year-old Nadal could return from his latest injury for the Paris Masters, which starts at the end of this month.

"I started to be myself again on the court [and] playing [my] best tennis from the grass court season". Emotionally they helped me a lot when I had the surgery.

The 31-year-old Serbian, who has not lost a match since Toronto in August, broke four times of six offerings and never gave his opponent any breaking opportunity in this lop-sided hour-long match.

"In the offseason I made a decision to change my whole team".
