SHANGHAI | Djokovic lines up Anderson in Shanghai quarters
SHANGHAI — Novak Djokovic earned partial revenge when he beat Marco Cecchinato 6-4, 6-0 to reach the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals on Thursday.
The only other time the second-seeded Djokovic played Cecchinato was in the French Open quarterfinals, where the Italian upset him in four sets.
A Masters event is a level below a Grand Slam, but Djokovic was rapt to crush Cecchinato.
“I was making him play always an extra shot,” Djokovic said.
