Showing no signs of nerves, the American came from 15-30 down to consolidate the break for a formidable 4-1 lead.

RAFAEL Nadal has continued to scythe his way through the Shanghai Masters, reaching the quarter-finals with a 6-3 6-1 thrashing of temperamental Italian Fabio Fognini.

Dimitrov extended the quarter-final to a third set when he rebounded from a 4-2 deficit to win the second-set tiebreaker.

The final set was full of momentum shifts, first starting with Dimitrov's break of serve in the opening game as he carried over the momentum from the second set.

But the Bulgarian, who sent down 13 aces in the match, took the fight to the Spaniard in the second set, coming from 3-0 down in a tie-break to level.

Nadal is yet to drop serve in Shanghai.
