Kyle Edmund loses to Alexander Zverev in Shanghai quarter finals

Kyle Edmund loses to Alexander Zverev in Shanghai quarter finals

Federer takes to the court second on Saturday's schedule, which has a more pleasant feel to it from a start time perspective, with this starting at 1pm United Kingdom time, after Alexander Zverev versus Novak Djokovic, which begins at 930am.

'It's going to be a very interesting match.' Zverev has now 43 matches this year, the highest amount on the ATP Tour.

Novak Djokovic continued his sensational resurgence by demolishing Alexander Zverev in straight sets to reach his fourth final at the Shanghai Masters.

The first set went with serve, and some big serves at that until Djokovic grabbed the break to go 4-2 up.

Serbia's Djokovic, a 14-time Grand Slam champion, beat the German world number five 6-2 6-1 in just over an hour.

"Obviously it's great to finally officially make it and obviously be part of the eight best again, which is an elite group, which is kind of the goal for everyone at the beginning of the season", Zverev said.

The majority were killed during border demonstrations, though others have died in airstrikes and tank shelling. But thousands of protestors again gathered Friday in sites along the border, AFP correspondents said.

"He (Zverev) has improved a lot, and he has established himself as a top player", Djokovic said. "I wasn't, I feel like, playing as well as I'm playing today". Djokovic didn't give the South African another opportunity.

Zverev had a slight wobble while serving for the set but saved the only break point he faced in the match en route to clinching the first set in 34 minutes.

Friday's four favourites triumphed - an outcome which was around a [3.50] shot based on the prices available at the time of yesterday's preview, and I certainly don't see any reason to adapt my point of view that the matches were accurately priced by the market.

"It's close to, or it's maybe equal to winning a Grand Slam, and I think other players will tell you the same thing, because just to be there, you obviously play well throughout the whole year". I mean, as I said, he had a wrist surgery two days ago.

'I just think his mindset and movement was wonderful.

'There is a lot going on you don't get to see on the inside but most of the time I learn to control the emotions'.
