Djokovic’s [1] routine ‘6-3 6-4’ victory, his second with this scoreline in the finals of Masters 1K, following last year’s triumph over Coric in Shanghai. Tsitsipas [9] began the match being nervous after arguably his biggest win over Nadal in the semis. From *0:3 he was playing well, and led 4:3 in the 2nd set when Djokovic finished as he began – with three straight games won. “These are the best tournaments, biggest tournaments we have in our sport, in the ATP, of course alongside the Grand Slams,” Djokovic said on court after his win. “This is as important and as good as it gets.”

Djokovic’s route to his 74th title:
2 Taylor Fritz 6-4, 6-2
3 Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 7-6(2)
Q Marin Cilic w/o
S Dominic Thiem 7-6(2), 7-6(4)
W Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 6-4
