Djokovic edges closer to No 2 rank­ing

Herald on Sunday - - IN OTHER NEWS -

No­vak Djokovic ex­tended his win­ning streak to 16 matches af­ter beat­ing South African Kevin An­der­son 7-6 (1) 6-3 at the Shang­hai Mas­ters, edg­ing the Serb closer to the world No 2 rank­ing. Djokovic, who has won the last two grand slams — Wim­ble­don and the US Open — is world No 3 but could move up a spot if he books a place in the fi­nal. Djokovic held the ad­van­tage to seal the vic­tory and set up a semi­fi­nal clash with Ger­many’s Alexan­der Zverev, who be­came the fifth sin­gles player to qual­ify for Novem­ber’s ATP Fi­nals with a 6-4 6-4 win over Kyle Ed­mund.

No­vak Djokovic has won 16 in a row.
