World No.2 Novak Djokovic came into today's Shanghai Master's final as the favorite, but he soon found out why Andy Murray is the most improve player on the tour this year. In a repeat of the thrilling US Open final, this match was yet another nerve racking match as Djokovic had to dig as deep as one could, saving 5 match points in the second set, before finally taking the set and eventually the match. The Serb smashed 32 winners in the match, and made just 38 errors compared to 48 from the Andy Murray record.
That first set was filled with some high octane tennis from both players. In some ways it reminded us of the US Open final first set, as both players found it difficult to find their rhythm, especially on serve. Djokovic's first serve percentage was remarkably low, as the Serb has been outstanding on serve all tournament long. Something that exemplified the incompetence on serve for the World No.2 was that he was broken a massive 4 times in the set.
If the first set was good the second was an absolute thriller! The Serb looked down and out initially and had a pretty lacklustre start to the set. It was in the seventh game that we saw our first break of serve, and really, the crowd had gone quiet and Djokovic as Djokovic kept struggling. The Serb however, did what he does best in the tenth game of the set, switching gears as he galvanized himself to break back Murray saving a championship point. The set went to the tie break where both players played some sensational tennis, Djokovic saved a further 4 championship points, but it was the Serb who came out on top in the end. Djokovic smashed 18 winners in that set.
The third set was a bit of an anti climax as both players looked a bit tired. Djokovic though is known to be mentally tough and Murray though, has improved a lot this year but was suspect mentally in this match. The defending champion could never recover from losing those 5 match points and was broken twice in the third as Novak clinched yet another title this year.
