Impressive Djokovic gets revenge to make Shanghai quarters

Impressive Djokovic gets revenge to make Shanghai quarters

Shanghai, 11 October 2018 (MIA) - Novak Djokovic enjoyed a measure of revenge as he booked his spot in the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals with a 6-4, 6-0 demolition of Marco Cecchinato on Thursday (Oct 11).

The Serbian second seed was stunned by the Italian - ranked 72 in the world at the time - in the French Open quarter-finals earlier this year.

It was part of the wretched run of form Djokovic suffered in the first half of the year after elbow surgery in February, AFP reports.

But the world number three exploded back to life in the northern hemisphere summer, winning Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and US Open.

The 31-year-old, who is now gunning for Rafael Nadal's number one ranking, says he is back close to the kind of blistering form that has brought him 14 Grand Slams.

And he proved it against Cecchinato, bustling past the 16th seed in just under 70 minutes. 

Djokovic will play South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals. sk/11:30
