Top seed Novak Djokovic captured his third successive China Open title with a straight sets victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The Serbian took just one hour and 42 minutes to dispose of his French rival, winning 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 to capture his 32nd career trophy and $530,570 winner's cheque.

Despite the eventual outcome Tsonga started strongly, breaking Djokovic, but the favourite struck back to take the set to a tie break, where he did not look back after going 3-0 ahead.

The second set was more one-sided as Djokovic broke in the third game and repeated the trick to claim the title.
