Del Potro beats Zverev to enter Shanghai Masters quarters

Del Potro beats Zverev to enter Shanghai Masters quarters

"I'm a bit pissed off because I feel like I played well and that's the upsetting part of it - I could have done great in this tournament". "Its better like this than having long matches". But Dimitrov won the final five points to get through.

Sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov also advanced, but had to save three match points before beating Ryan Harrison 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6).

Juan Martín del Potro is making a late run to qualify as one of the chosen eight for next month's ATP Tour Finals in London after his determined fight-back to beat Alexander Zverev at the Shanghai Rolex Masters.

The German prodigy and the 29-year-old, whose career has been beset by injury, went toe to toe in the second set and the tie break was just as tight until Del Potro grabbed the crucial mini-break.

Zverev, in the hunt for a sixth ATP title of the season, lost his composure after netting a backhand to surrender his serve in the fifth game of the third set to the Argentine.

"For me, it's impossible to lose a match when I've only been broken one time", Zverev said.

The Argentine dug deep against the 20-year-old German to win 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 in the third round, to book a quarter-final spot for just the second time. "And that's what I did for the second and the third set", the 2009 US Open champion Del Potro said.
