Federer romps into Shanghai Open semis

Del Potro, who has undergone surgery on both wrists, conferred with a trainer as he repeatedly shook his wrist.

"I don't know how my wrist is after I fell down", del Potro said before leaving for a local hospital. I made bad decision going for the forehand in the 4-2 of the tie-break.

"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".

The world No 1 persevered 6-4 6-7 6-3 to book a semi-final with Marin Cilic, and record a second win over Dimitrov in as many weeks.

Federer broke Gasquet at 5-5 to gain the advantage and went on to take the first set. Federer claimed two more breaks in the next to seal the deal in an hour and 18 minutes.

Roger Federer is through to the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters after a hard-fought victory over Richard Gasquet.


Roger Federer, seeded second to Nadal, also was not detained for long as he defeated Ukrainian qualifier Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 6-2.

Dimitrov, ranked eighth in the world, had break point early in the third set, but Nadal saved it with a backhand volley before winning three consecutive games.

Here, Dimitrov extended their quarterfinal to a third set when he rebounded from a 4-2 deficit to win the second-set tiebreaker.

Dimitrov sensed another opportunity in the fifth game of the third set, but Nadal survived the break point.

"It was a very tough match", Nadal said. "Of course, being able to win the US Open, Beijing, and being in the semi-finals here ... But I think he's still very young and he needs to keep learning, as he's doing now", said the Argentine, 23 in the world.

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.
