ATP Shanghai - Saturday Schedule: another Federer vs Nadal final?

ATP Shanghai - Saturday Schedule: another Federer vs Nadal final?

The world No 1 persevered 6-4 6-7 6-3 to book a semi-final with Marin Cilic, and record a second win over Dimitrov in as many weeks.

On the other side of the draw, Juan Martin del Potro overcame a nasty tumble to beat Serbia's Viktor Troicki 4-6 6-1 6-4.

The talented 20-year-old Zverev was going after his sixth title of a breakthrough season and was comfortable in the first set against Argentine Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion and 16th seed.

The Croat, who has yet to drop a set in this year's tournament, served 10 aces as he registered a 6-3 6-4 win.

"It was a very tough match", Nadal said.

The 16-times grand slam victor, who beat Dimitrov in three sets in the China Open semi-finals last week, fired 32 winners and won two crucial breaks to prevail in two and a half hours at the Qi Zhong Centre.

The next couple of games went past within a blink of an eye, and Harrison soon found himself serving for the set at 5-3 up.

The mother said vaccinations go against her religious beliefs. "It's helped me get through this, truly", she added. "I just found out that he was vaccinated and I'm not going to get him back today", she told the Washington Post.

"It's better like this than having long matches, you save, a little bit more, the body", Nadal said.

A fan at least came away with a demolished racquet for a souvenir after the young German handed it to a spectator. Consolidating the break of serve, the world number nine had the golden opportunity to extend his lead when he earned a break point in the third game with Harrison unable to gain any rhythm on his serve.

"I saw his frustration, for sure".

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

"He has everything to be in the top positions in the future, but these things happen. He broke racquets too".

Cilic advanced to his first Shanghai semifinal by beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 6-3, 6-4.
