The world tennis number one Novak Djokovic has beaten Tomas Berdych in a lop-sided contest to win his fifth China Open crown.
Maria Sharapova overcame Petra Kvitova in the women's final to move up to number two in the world rankings.
Djokovic took just over an hour to seal a 6-0 6-2 win against Berdych, who raised his arms in celebration when he won a game to avoid the ignominy of failing to win a single game in the match.
Berdych managed to win back-to-back games, but it was just a matter of time before Djokovic sealed an easy win to continue his love affair with the Beijing tournament where he's now won all of his 24 matches.
"This was probably the best performance in a final I ever had. Everything I tried worked, it was incredible," Djokovic said.
Berdych conceded he had not experienced such a mauling before.
"I just said to my coach now that I probably played over 700 matches in my career, and I met guys like Andre (Agassi), Roger (Federer), all those probably in their best times. But I have never, ever experienced anything like that."
Earlier in the women's final, Wimbledon champion Kvitova broke her opponent in the very first game but Sharapova showed greater intensity towards the end to prevail 6-4 2-6 6-3 in two hours and 28 minutes.
