Djokovic lifts the title in Shanghai for the fourth time and 32nd Masters 1000 Crown

Novak Djokovic is now close to №1 in the world rankings, but the Serb said to be at the top of the standings at the end of the year will be one of his greatest achievements in 2018. Nole won the final of the Masters Cup in Shanghai, beating definitely over Borna Coric.


“Phenomenal! I am proud of the achievements as well as my team. I owe a lot to them and to my family,” said 31-year-old. “My success in the past three to four months is wonderful, and I did not have a lot of gaps in my game, especially this week, and it works perfectly, and this is one of my strongest weeks in terms of workshops. Over the week could face the 2-3 break points and never lost his submission. It does not happen often and I do not think that happened to me, so I’m pleased with that part of my game and the result. At times I may have been a mentor for Borna, he always wanted to know more about tennis, and he has the potential to be among the top players and he is now building a name.”


“There was no way I wanted better scenarios. I’m close to Nadal and I’m in a good position for the last part of the season. I plan to play in Paris and London, maybe another tournament before. To finish like No 1, I will be one of my greatest achievements.”  After the game, Coric reported that Djokovic was one of his role models in childhood. “I like him very much. I’ve been watching him since he was a young man. We speak one language and we have trained together, “said the Croatian.
