Shanghai Masters 2015 Finals: Just another day at the office for Djokovic
Novak Djokovic showcased once again as to why he has been virtually unbeatable this year as he romped to title yet another title in Shanghai. This was Djokovic’s 9th title of the season including 3 grand slam victories. The championship at the Shanghai Rolex Masters on Sunday featured the 20th meeting between World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 16 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Djokovic held a 13-6 FedEx ATP Head2Head record against the Frenchman, including 7-6 on hard courts.
Djokovic’s impeccable record in China
A routine straight sets win over Tsonga ensured that Nole maintained a clean slate in the finals in China (he is now 10-0 in title matches). Djokovic came into the final having won 37 of his last 38 matches in China, winning consecutive titles in Beijing and Shanghai in 2012-13 and Beijing from 2012-15. His 28-match winning streak in China ended last year when he lost to Federer in the semi-finals in Shanghai. Overall, he has won nine career titles in China (six in Beijing, three in Shanghai). He has never lost in the China Open (29-0) and is 23-3 at the Shanghai Rolex Masters (since 2009).
