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.
The 31-year-old had defeated Alexander Zverev of Germany 6-2, 6-1 to book his place in the final of the ongoing tournament.
Djokovic said he felt that the Chinese fans were really behind him and he always liked to come back to Shanghai for this reason.
Victory extends Djokovic's love affair with Masters 1000 events, after his defeat of Federer in the final of August's Cincinnati Masters helped him become the first man in history to win all nine titles since the series' inception in 1990.
Awaiting Coric in the final is second seed Djokovoic after the three-time Shanghai Masters victor powered past fourth seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany 6-2, 6-1 earlier in the day.
As far as head to head record is concerned, both the players have met twice in their careers and both times it is the Serbian player who has emerged victorious.

Warren's dramatic revelation was accompanied by a video and a fact-checking page on her website . A descendant of Pocahontas, the 17-century Powhatan princess, said Sen.
And following this latest win, Djokovic watched as Coric apologised to the crowd for not being able to speak their native language before stepping up to the microphone and reeling off ideal Chinese in his acceptance speech. "The last three or four months have been phenomenal in terms of the quality of tennis", Djokovic said.
Djokovic is most renown for his incredible defensive skills but he has shown another side to his game this week by going the whole tournament without being broken. "That hasn't happened many times, I don't know if it ever happened". Emotionally they helped me a lot when I had the surgery.
The extra 1,000 ranking points help Djokovic break into the world's top two for the first time since June 2017, while he also earned $1,360,560 in prize money for his efforts in Shanghai.
"I thought I was actually playing really well", the Croat told the ATP. I think since I was a kid I was always paying attention to the practice court.
"I found it and I'm just trying to hold on to it as long as I can".
"Everything worked perfectly, I think this was one of the best serving weeks that I had. It's awesome. I need to take only positives from this week".
