Zverev knocks out Federer in Shanghai Masters quarterfinals

Zverev knocks out Federer in Shanghai Masters quarterfinals

Shanghai, Oct 11 (SocialNews.XYZ) Swiss superstar Roger Federer followed Serbian Novak Djokovic out of the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals after a three-set defeat of 6-3, 6-7 (7), 6-3 to Germany's Alexander Zverev here on Friday.

The 22-year-old fifth seed will face Austria's Dominic Thiem or Matteo Berrettini of Italy in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Federer, the champion in Shanghai in 2014 and 2017, was given a point penalty after losing his temper and twice hitting the ball out the court in the decider, when he was down by 3-0 and 30-15 in the fourth game.

 

But the 20-time Grand Slam winner had already shown his resistance in the second set as he saved five match points to force a deciding set.

Since Greek talent Stefanos Tsitsipas and Russia's Daniil Medvedev have set their clash in the semi-finals, no matter whether Thiem or Berrettini win in the last quarterfinal, this year's Shanghai Masters will mark the first time in ATP Tour Masters history that all the four semi-finalists were born in the 1990s.
