Federer romps into Shanghai Open semis

Federer romps into Shanghai Open semis

"We'll see tomorrow if I can have another good day".

He will now face Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion and Rio 2016 Olympic silver medallist who came from behind to end the run of Serbia's Viktor Troicki.

"But if nothing risky happened, I will be here to play tomorrow and doing my best". I know that I need to be focused with my serve again, and I need to play aggressive and don't let him play from comfortable positions.

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.

Del Potro ended up breaking Troicki's serve in that fifth game and prevailed 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

"I'm glad to reach the semi-finals in this tournament, but to be honest now, as I say always, health is the first of all of my life", Del Potro said.

Del Potro, pushed to the brink of retirement by four wrist surgeries that saw his ranking slip as low as 1,045 at one point in his career, said Zverev would learn.

Fourth-seeded Cilic stands between Nadal and a second ATP final in two weeks.

Top seed Nadal is chasing a tour-leading seventh title this season, and beat Bulgaria's Dimitrov for the second time in a week following his semi-final victory at the China Open.

From 2-5 down and trailing by a double mini-break in the tiebreak, Dimitrov roared back into the match as he saved three straight match points from a 3-6 deficit, eventually claiming the hard-fought victory in three tough sets.

Wimbledon runner-up Marin Cilic also eased into the quarter-finals with a 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 defeat of American Steve Johnson.

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