Federer Growing In Confidence, Overcomes Nishikori In Shanghai

Alexander Zverev is into the final four

Roger Federer said that he did not want to lose in front of his young family as he was pushed all the way for the second match in a row at the Shanghai Masters yesterday.

Earlier in the day, second seeded Djokovoic beat Kevin Anderson of South Afica 7-6 (1), 6-3 in the rematch of the 2018 Wibledon final.

Three-time Shanghai Open victor Djokovic stormed past German Alexander Zverev 6-2 6-1 in Saturday's earlier semi and claimed the world number two ranking from Federer. But even in defeat, both Federer and Zverev have qualified for the season-ending ATP Finals, featuring the world's top eight players on November 11 in London.

Coric, on the other hand, had stunned defending champion Roger Federer 6-4, 6-4 in their semi-final clash to advance into the last two round of the tournament.

Federer led Bautista Agut by a set and a service break when he became entangled in a fight that lasted until the second-to-last game of the third set.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is pregnant, Kensington Palace confirms
The huge trip will be packed with 76 engagements, with the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 taking centre stage. However Kensington Palace has refused to comment whether Meghan's father Thomas Markle has been told.

Zverev, who qualified for the ATP Finals with his quarter-final win over Kyle Edmund, was unable to stem the tide and his frustration got the better of him after he was broken again early in the second set.

"It was one of the best matches of my life", Coric said.

"I'm actually quite happy", Federer said.

Federer will play eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori, a finalist in Tokyo last week, in the quarterfinals.

But the world number three exploded back to life mid-season, winning Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and US Open.

IMF Raises GDP Growth Forecast for Hungary

"I did everything I meant to do on my end", the 31-year-old Serb, chasing his 32nd Masters title, said.

There was no let-up, though, and a sublime volley had Djokovic cupping an ear to the crowd as Coric failed to break back, the contest finally settled as the 14-time grand slam victor served out the championship.

Djokovic is targeting his 72nd career title here on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Serb will also overtake Federer for the No.2 spot in the ATP rankings after claiming a 17th consecutive win in his 1000th senior contest.
