15 October, 2018, 14:13
Coric - who beat Roger Federer in the semi-finals - was taking part in his maiden Masters 1000 series final.
Djokovic, who had elbow surgery in February but recovered to win Wimbledon and then the US Open last month, said: "Being number two after this tournament is also a great achievement, considering the first four, five months of the year and considering I had the surgery".
The 20-times Grand Slam victor has produced a series of lacklustre performances in Shanghai, his first tournament since suffering a shock fourth-round defeat by John Millman at the U.S. Open last month.
Coric earned passage to the final by taking down the top-seeded Federer 6-4, 6-4 in the semifinals on Saturday.
A miss-hit Federer forehand gifted Coric the opening break of the second set for a 2-0 lead, before Coric pulled off an excellent lob and smashed an ace down the tee to move clear at 5-3.
"I did everything I meant to do on my end", the 31-year-old Serb, chasing his 32nd Masters title, said. Obviously the last three, four months have been terrific for me. Roger Federer used to be the best mover in the game, now Djokovic is the best.
"Serving, I think, it's okay, could be even a little bit better".
21-year-old Croatian tennis player Borna Ćorić has ended the 2018 Shanghai Masters with a cheque for $667,000 and a new career-high ranking after finishing runner-up.
"I am very close to Rafael Nadal in the rankings and I have put myself in a very good position for the last period of the year".
The second set followed a similar pattern and, while Coric improved, he was unable to deny Djokovic a fourth Shanghai Masters title.
"Novak was on a whole another level today and I congratulate him".
There was no let-up, though, and a sublime volley had Djokovic cupping an ear to the crowd as Coric failed to break back, the contest finally settled as the 14-time grand slam victor served out the championship.
He left Game 2 having limited enough damage for the Red Sox to win 7-5 and salvage a split of the first two games. Mookie Betts hit a hard grounder, and third baseman Alex Bregman threw home for the force and the second out.
