  • Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on collision course in Shanghai Masters

"I don't understand how I can lose a match where I get broken one time in three sets and not managed to get any chances on his serve", said Zverev, who is tipped to one day make world number one.

Juan Martin del Potro could be forced out of his Shanghai Masters semifinal Saturday against Roger Federer after the Argentine suffered a wrist injury in an awkward fall on court. I'm happy I was able to do better today on the break points. "I would like to play and be 100 percent".

1 just about beat his friend Dimitrov, the sixth seed, 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 6-3 to stay on course for a possible glamour final with old rival Roger Federer. Nadal ultimately prevailed, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-3. 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.

"I think (it was) a great battle between two players who are playing all the time very focused, very intense points".

Nadal is yet to drop serve in Shanghai.

World number five Cilic secured his place in the semi-finals with a routine victory over Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas.
