Canada's Vasek Pospisil drops tough match against Daniil Medvedev

Stefanos Tsitsipas celebrates

After early exits at Indian Wells, Miami and Monte Carlo, Novak improved his Masters 1000 telly in 2019 with the title in Madrid and the final in Rome, moving closer to that 350th victory and achieving it here in Shanghai for another massive milestone.

"Since Greek talent Stefanos Tsitsipas and Russia" s Daniil Medvedev have set their clash in the semi-finals, no matter whether Thiem or Berrettini win in the last quarterfinal, this year" s Shanghai Masters will mark the first time in ATP Tour Masters history that all the four semi-finalists were born in the 1990s.

"(All) you can do is hit as hard as you can side to side, be accurate and make him move, otherwise you can just play it back to him.it just keeps coming back".

The Russian has now won 28 of his last 31 matches including two titles in this run that innocently began with the Washington title in July.

Tsitsipas had accounted for world No.1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic in thre sets in Friday's quarter-finals.

"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".

"I think be more aggressive because once you get aggressive and they see that you're really going for it, I might even say they get scared", he said. "Probably two, three, four, five, six years' time, I don't know, but it's going to come at some point".

World number six Zverev strengthened his position in the Race To London standings with a 6-3 6-4 win over Italian Matteo Berrettini.


"It feels great, obviously".

So, Tsitsipas and Zverev join the two straight-set victors, Daniil Medvedev and Matteo Berrettini, in the semi-finals to complete a quartet of "next-gen" players remaining in the draw, with Saturday's semi-finals getting underway at 930 United Kingdom time.

"I'm looking forward to it and hopefully I can play some good tennis".

Zverev has never lost to Medvedev in four previous attempts, and the German has dropped just the one set in those matches, but he has not faced this version of Daniil Medvedev who is without doubt the most in-form player on tour at this moment in time.

"We've played some fantastic matches, all going my way until now".

Zverev boosted his hopes of reaching the ATP Finals by reaching his first championship match since May and a first Masters final of 2019.

The 23-year-old Russian has now won a staggering 58 matches this season, more than most have played in total, and has reached his sixth consecutive tournament final dating back to the Citi Open in August.
