Tsitsipas stuns Djokovic in Shanghai quarters

Denis Shapovalov and Novak Djokovic

Djokovic got himself out of trouble to level at 3-3 in the second set after drilling a forehand long to gift his opponent a couple of break points. Fourth-seeded Austrian Thiem defeated Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3 6-4. Khachanov had won their first career meeting in three sets at the China Open quarter-finals in Beijing. "I started well in the first set, but I wasn't sharp enough".

Federer committed 40 unforced errors but saved five set points in the opening set.

The 23-year-old sent down 12 aces to Fognini's three in the match.

Despite the outcome, Federer didn't feel in control of their round-of-16 match. "I felt it was one of the best serving matches I've had". "I thought he took really a lot of good decisions, and he was super fast on his feet today, which I think made it really hard for me to get my freebies and winners off the baseline".

Those two clashes form the basis of the early schedule, with action getting underway at 530 United Kingdom time, but the second two quarter-finals take place around lunchtime, with Roger Federer looking fairly generously priced at [1.54] against Alexander Zverev.

Zverev beat Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation 6-0, 7-6 (4) in the final match of the night. "He served for the set at 6-5".

The indictment also claims that Parnas and Fruman "committed to raise $20,000 or more for a then-sitting U.S. Parnas and Fruman told the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project in July that they told Mr.

Daniil Medvedev's 6-3 7-6 (7-4) victory over Fabio Fognini sealed Tsitsipas' spot in the season-ending tournament in London for the first time and the 21-year-old capped a memorable Friday by beating Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-3.

The market suggests, and my model agrees, that it's going to take more than this to beat Djokovic tomorrow, and Novak is likely going to have a real off-day if Tsitsipas is to cause a shock result.

Novak Djokovic's semifinal streak in Shanghai is over. He won his inaugural appearance at the Japan Open last week without losing a set.

"He deserved the victory", Djokovic said.

"It is always a big challenge returning the serve of Isner", he said.
