ATP Shanghai Del Potro tops Zverev. Dimitrov beats Querrey to reach QF

World number one Rafael Nadal breezed into the quarter finals of the Shanghai Masters today.

The Spaniard needed two minutes over the hour to dispatch Fognini, taking his winning streak to 14 matches since the start of the U.S. Open where he claimed a 16th grand slam title.

Fognini was playing the day after being handed a suspended ban from two grand slams and $96,000 (A$123,000) fine for verbally abusing a female umpire at the US Open.

Federer, who is the only player in the running to stop Nadal's charge for end-of-season bragging rights, said his body was being kind to him.

Federer delighted his small army of Chinese fans inside the Qi Zhong Centre with an emphatic 6-4 6-2 defeat of tricky Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov. I'm happy I was able to do better today on the break points. "It was really a fast-court match".

Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro came from behind to oust German third seed Alexander Zverev.

Sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov, who saved match points on Wednesday against Ryan Harrison, had a more comfortable day as he beat American 10th seed Sam Querrey 6-3 7-6 (3).

Dimitrov, closing in on a first appearance at the ATP World Tour Finals, plays Nadal next.

Marin Cilic, the fourth seed, was a 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 victor against Steve Johnson, while Grigor Dimitrov got past Sam Querrey to set up an encounter with Nadal.
