BEIJING (AP) — Top-seeded Novak Djokovic extended his perfect record at the China Open when he defeated third-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 7-6 (4), 6-2 in the final Sunday.
On the women's side, top-seeded Victoria Azarenka won her fifth title of the year by dominating second-seeded Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-1. It was the third time this year Azarenka beat Sharapova in a final after victories at the Australian Open and Indian Wells.
Djokovic has won the tournament on all three occasions he has entered, defeating Marin Cilic in the 2009 final and David Ferrer in 2010. He has a 14-0 record.
The Serb has won 65 matches this season, the most by any player on the ATP tour. Djokovic also has four titles in 2012, including the Australian Open.
During the award ceremony, Djokovic celebrated with the ball boys and girls by dancing to "Gangnam Style," the popular single by Korean rapper Psy.
"The song is quite catchy so I might do it again," Djokovic said.
Sharapova struggled with Azarenka's power throughout the 88-minute match and also had six double-faults in the opening set.
Azarenka raced to a 4-0 lead in both sets with Sharapova managing to hold her serve only twice in the match.
