ATP Shanghai Nadal edges Dimitrov to set up Cilic clash

Rafael Nadal has tied Andre Agassi for sixth place on the list of Open Era wins by reaching the Shanghai Masters semi-finals.

Roger Federer is through to the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters after a hard-fought victory over Richard Gasquet.

The Spaniard got the mini-break for a 3-0 lead in the tiebreak, but sixth seed Dimitrov scrapped back to level, and then stunned Nadal to clinch the tiebreak. I'm going to the hospital to see what the MRI says, and what the doctor says.

"Winning a lot of matches in a row, so I'm very happy for everything", Nadal said.

Former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro won the match of the day by stopping third seed Alexander Zverev, recovering from losing the opener to win 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4. Federer claimed two more breaks in the next to seal the deal in an hour and 18 minutes. 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.




"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. Topping Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3 was his 870th match win. "Of course, being able to win the U.S. Open, Beijing, and being in the semifinals here ..."

Nadal has yet to drop serve in Shanghai. "But I think he's still very young and he needs to keep learning, as he's doing now", said the Argentine, 23 in the world.

"I felt good in the first match", the 36-year-old said.

Meanwhile, Cilic's quarter-final win over Albert Ramos-Vinolas puts him ahead of Dimitrov at No 5 in the race to the ATP World Tour Finals in London.
