It proved all too easy once again for Novak Djokovic as the world No. 1 continued his frightening dominance of men's tennis by blitzing past Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win another Shanghai Masters title on Sunday.

The Serbian, a 10-time grand slam champion, brushed aside the challenge of a befuddled Tsonga 6-1, 6-4 to claim his third Shanghai Masters and ninth title of a standout year that has left him being spoken of among the sport's all-time greats.

Djokovic won three grand slams this year, was runnerup at the French Open and since suffering a surprise quarterfinal loss to Ivo Karlovic in Qatar in January has made the final of all 13 events he has played.
