Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

No­vak Djokovic will take on Borna Coric in the Shang­hai Mas­ters fi­nal on Sun­day af­ter the Croa­t­ian 13th seed com­fort­ably de­feated top seed and de­fend­ing cham­pion Roger Fed­erer.

Djokovic pro­duced a flaw­less per­for­mance to thrash fourth seed Alexan­der Zverev 6-2, 6-1 in the first semi­fi­nal on Sat­ur­day, the vic­tory guar­an­tee­ing the 31-year-old Serb a move up to No 2 in the world rank­ings.

Cel­e­brat­ing his 1,000 ATP Tour-level match in style, the 14-time grand slam win­ner was clin­i­cal, need­ing only an hour to de­feat Ger­many’s Zverev and con­tinue his im­pe­ri­ous form to claim his 17th ATP vic­tory in a row.
