Shanghai Masters: Medvedev Reaches Sixth Final

Shanghai Masters: Novak Djokovic beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in quarter-finals Nadal back on top as Tsitsipas dethrones Djokovic in Shanghai

Daniil Medvedev kept his hot streak going besting Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-6 (5), 7-5 to reach his sixth straight tournament final.

The US Open finalist defeated fellow rising star Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 7-6 (7/5), 7-5.

Medvedev will meet Alexander Zverev who raced past US Open semifinalist Matteo Berrettini 6-3, 6-4 to reach his first final since May in Geneva.

The sixth seed won his first encounter with the world number one at the Rogers Cup past year and gained revenge for a defeat in their second meeting in Madrid this season, having also beaten Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in 2019. Zverev will face off against Matteo Berrettini on Saturday, while Tsitsipas will play Daniil Medvedev.

"He will always make it tricky for you like he did today with me, and you always got to play your best tennis to have a chance", Zverev said. I felt like I've played some decent tennis this week and being in a Masters 1000 final here in Shanghai is also something very special for me.

One of 26 unforced errors from Djokovic gave Tsitsipas, who produced an array of searing backhand and forehand winners, three break points and he grasped the opportunity to take a 3-1 lead in the third before going on to seal his place in the penultimate round. "I didn't feel bad", Tsitsipas said. "I hope it's just going to be a good match tomorrow".

That all changed thanks to Quentin Tarantino , who cast him as a sympathetic bail bondsman in his 1997 crime drama Jackie Brown . Forster is survived by his four children, four grandchildren, and long-time partner, Denise Grayson.

"It's so boring that I hate myself for putting myself into that kind of situation where I have to play in his own terms and not in my terms".

23-year-old German number one Zverev quelled the powerful Italian in a particularly impressive way, and faced no break points as well as just two aces from his opponent's racket.

The 38-year-old Federer is third in the world, while Nadal and Djokovic divvied up all four Grand Slams between them this year.

"He's probably the best player in the world right now". But he said that past meetings with Medvedev stood for nothing because the Russian has improved markedly since their last match, in 2018. Medvedev's consistent results at the biggest events in recent months have made him one of the hottest players on the ATP Tour. Tsitsipas has beaten the best player in the world to reach the Shanghai Masters semi-finals, as well as qualifying for the ATP Tour finals.

The words "crazy", "amazing" and "dangerous" have been used by current and former tennis players to describe Daniil Medvedev this week, with at least two of them considering the Russian to be the most unsafe player so far.
