Mexico have won seven and drawn two of their 13 previous meetings with South Korea.
The two greats had met more than any other two players in the Open era, a record 55 times before Sunday's showdown, with Djokovic holding a 29-26 lead.
Both wearing the No. 15 jersey, Xu and Xinjiang's Liu Tongyi shone on the offensive end in the third quarter. Xu scored seven straight points, while Liu drained two 3-pointers coupled with a jumper. Jiangsu went up 66-60 after three quarters.
China's top player Ding Junhui came from 3-0 down to beat compatriot Si Jiahui 4-3 while world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan also fought back from 2-0 down to knock out Frenchman Brian Ochoiski, 4-2.
Liu Qi and Xu Nairui chipped in with 12 and 11 points respectively for Daqing.
As opposed to early sluggishness last game, Xinjiang heated up quickly into the game with a 10-0 surge on Shanghai's consecutive turnovers, before Bao Meng's jumper snapped Shanghai's scoring drought over six minutes. Xinjiang set up a 10-point cushion as the first quarter ran out.
Temwa Chawinga broke the deadlock for Wuhan in the 26th minute, taking advantage of an error from a Jiangsu defender in the penalty area and lobbing the ball into the net. Jiangsu wasted a chance to level the game in the 38th minute as Ni Mengjie missed a penalty.

"I'm kind of surprised! I never thought before the tournament I would play so well. But always knew that if I was going to make a final of a Grand Slam, it would be the French Open," said the Polish teenager said, who crashed Podoroska's hope to become the first qualifier ever to make into the final at a major.
The Serb restored himself in the decider and played more aggressively on his return to seal it 6-1. The 33-year-old has shown his great ability when played under pressure in recent two weeks as he saved 76 percent break points en route to Sunday's final.
