Djokovic said that he is fully recovered from a shoulder injury.

"He had the high-quality tennis and he played very well after his serve", the 32-year-old Serb said of world number seven Tsitsipas.

"I'm happy because I was losing to him last week and I was playing really good also", 10th-seeded Fognini said. But that was guaranteed when third-seeded Daniil Medvedev beat Fabio Fognini 6-3, 7-6 (4) in another quarterfinal match.

The world No.7 remained persistent and patient in lengthy exchanges to find the match-winning opportunity in the third set.

"Backhand - hard to break that backhand, it's very flat".

Novak Djokovic's hopes of ending the season ranked #1 took a hit after a loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Shanghai Masters.

Towards the end of the match, Djokovic was serving incredibly well - winning his last two service games to love.

Whether or not Durant meant any harm by those comments, he caused a reaction from the Knicks and the fans-almost too easily. Over the summer, Durant chose to sign with the Nets in July on a four-year contract worth $164 million.

Some people on social media have mentioned Tsitsipas" "clutch' ability and if such a phenomenon exists, it was on display against the improving Polish man, given that Tsitsipas saved four of his five break points, and converted one of his two - plus won the final set tiebreak.

The other match is between Austria's Dominic Thiem, who beat Tsitsipas to the China Open title on Sunday, and Italy's Matteo Berrettini.

Yeah, I never really felt like I had the upper hand over David today.

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, because he was getting to all of them.

The 38-year-old Swiss now faces Alexander Zverev after the German came through 6-0 7-6 (4) against Russian opponent Andrey Rublev.

Djokovic noted he had been nursing a shoulder injury heading into the tournament, though the Serbian showed no sign of a struggle with fitness as he wrapped up a 350th ATP 1000 career win with the minimum of fuss.
