Coric beats Federer to reach Shanghai Masters final

Coric beats Federer to reach Shanghai Masters final

Defending Champion Federer knocked out 8th seeded Kei Nisshikori of Japan 6-4, 7-6 (4) in one hour and 51 minutes with 10 aces, reports Xinhua news agency.

"Where I was about four months ago and where I am today is quite an extreme opposite". "I got off to a bad start in both sets".

"I don't think this was designed for me, anyhow". The Swiss broke serve three times and recovered from 1/4 down in the second set tie-break to record his 39th match win of the season.

Novak Djokovic cruised through his second-round match, but Juan Martin del Potro had to retire after hurting his right knee in a fall.

Bautista Agut, a finalist here in 2016, finally offered Federer an opening to take control by surrendering his serve in the ninth game of the third set. Nishikori ousted Sam Querrey 7-6 (7), 6-4 on Thursday.

When it moved to Masters 1000, which was the big plan - to make it a Masters 1000 - I was extremely excited because I also inaugurated the Stadium in 2005 so I feel very connected to the place and I love the tournament organizers who have been great friends of mine for a long time now, and I made them a promise that I will basically make Shanghai a priority and I will not miss out on it.

Djokovic enjoyed a measure of revenge as he booked his spot in the quarter-finals with a 6-4, 6-0 demolition of Marco Cecchinato.

But the unseeded Spaniard earned a piece of personal history after that, winning the second set - the first time he had ever done that against the Swiss maestro.

A Masters event is a level below a Grand Slam, but Djokovic was rapt to crush Cecchinato. "The second set was ideal, really". The Serb is on a 15-match winning streak, which includes title runs at Cincinnati and the US Open.

Djokovic is targeting his 72nd career title here on Sunday.

Djokovic will play South Africa's seventh seed Kevin Anderson. Awaiting the 14-time Grand Slam victor is fourth seeded Alexander Zverev after the rising German star saw off Kyle Edmund of Britain 6-4, 6-4.
