Novak Djokovic upstages opponent Borna Coric by speaking ideal Mandarin in Shanghai

Novak Djokovic speaks about his unbelievable footwork

October 13, 2018- Roger Federer meekly surrenders his Shanghai title in the semi finals, losing to Next-Gen star Borna Coric, in straight sets, continuing a wretched run of form (by his standards) with a 39-7 record.

With the 1000 points he garnered for winning the title, Djokovic would change places with Roger Federer as world number two.

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.

In the second set Coric battled hard to stay in the game, saving three match points at 5-4, helped by a woeful smash from Djokovic. Red-hot Djokovic has now been victorious in 18 ATP matches in a row and in recent months won Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters, the US Open and now Shanghai.

Novak Djokovic revealed that he may have been born a China man in a previous life and he proved it by speaking fluent Mandarin after winning the Shanghai Masters.

"It's phenomenal, I'm very proud of it", Djokovic told the ATP website. With his win over Coric in the Final, Djokovic now moves up a spot in the rankings to No. 2, taking the position away from Federer who falls to No. 3.

Los Angeles Dodgers win Game 2 in comeback fashion
Game 2 is Saturday at Miller Park, with Wade Miley pitching for the Brewers against Hyun-Jin Ryu. "The errors affected the game". He was co-MVP of the NLCS past year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the first time since 1988.

"And where I was about four months ago and where I am today is quite an extreme opposite".

"But for me serve was always, so to say, a hidden weapon, the shot in the game that is obviously very important, "the" most important".

"I could not ask for a better scenario", Djokovic said.

A forehand volley error from Coric gifted Djokovic the opening game of the second set, but the Croatian did well to save four break points in the third game that lasted 11 minutes.

"I found it and I'm just trying to hold on to it as long as I can". I think it was a really good week for me, from basically me thinking on Monday morning I'm going to fly out on Monday evening after my first match [against Stan Wawrinka] to playing my first Masters 1000 final.

During the week in China's commercial capital city, the expected Djokovic/Federer finals did not materialize after the top seeded players had been beaten in earlier rounds.
