Djokovic outguns Anderson in Shanghai

Edmund was beaten by Zverev in the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters

Coric beat Federer in the Halle final in their last meeting earlier this year. "I was saying before that I have never played on faster courts here in Shanghai, so this year more than ever I needed a lot of success with the first serves in".

He is on a 17-match winning streak and is 26-1 in matches played since the start of Wimbledon.

Anderson had a chance to take an early lead against Djokovic, but he overhit a forehand on set point in the 12th game of the match. He went up a break at the start of the second set, but then trailed 4-1 in the tiebreaker. "He served better", said Federer, proclaiming himself pleased nevertheless with his form. It's always a bit of a shock obviously for the body when you return, especially when you return the way, you know, maybe I have had the matches this week, but I must say I felt overall actually pretty good.

"I wasn't - I feel like - playing as well as I'm playing today", he warned.

Second seed Djokovic, who has returned to his brutal best this season with Grand Slam wins at Wimbledon and the U.S Open, will surpass Federer as world number two when the next edition of the ATP rankings are released on Monday.

The nice moment followed what was a cracking match-up between the pair, and even though Djokovic helped Coric out post-match, he didn't give him a break during the match itself.

The Yankees immediately challenged and, with a sellout crowd standing and hoping, the out call was upheld after a 63-second look. Moreland, a left-handed hitter with a good glove, was removed from Game 2 after he hurt his right hamstring running the bases.

The world number five - who beat Djokovic in their only previous meeting, past year in the Rome Masters final - recovered his poise for a time.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion has been imperious all week and barely offered a sniff to the 19th-ranked Croatian, a good friend and sometime-training partner.

Djokovic, who endured a turbulent last season with injury and off-court issues, said they were "both different players" now.

The top four players in the world - Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro - had already qualified for London. "I think I can be very happy with my level of play this week".

Although Roger Federer finally won a match in straight sets at this year's Shanghai Masters, it didn't save him any energy.

"I wouldn't be so dedicated to this sport if I didn't believe that I can achieve great heights", Djokovic said.
