Djokovic Defends Title after Defeating del Potro in Shanghai MastersNovak Djokovic overcame all odds defeating Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro to defend the Shanghai Masters title. Djokovic claimed victory bringing down del Potro with a 6-1,3-6,7-6 win.

26 year old Djokovic had an iron grip on the first set of the game establishing a double break and took control of the game using ground strokes that he used in defeating Nadal. While de Potro could not contain and control the aggressive play of Djokovic. But del Potro was able to regain his composure and was able to get his first opportunity in the game as Djokovic looked to have trouble in keeping balance. Then Djokovic had the opportunity to force a break and earn points in the seventh game but del Potro caught up to win five straight points for a hold and level the match and took the second set.

Both players held their own in the third set and this time Djokovic was able to hold his serve more easily and won the tie break and win his third match point. This victory will give Djokovic his 20th consecutive win after winning in last week’s China Open.
