Shanghai Masters Final - Daniil Medvedev vs Alexander Zverev Preview & Prediction

Shanghai Masters Final - Daniil Medvedev vs Alexander Zverev Preview & Prediction

In the second round, Novak took down Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 6-3 in 70 minutes, dropping eight points on serve and taking nearly half of the return points to dominate all the time, breaking Denis three times and moving over the top to set the third-round clash with John Isner.

"Obviously I had three [match points] on my serve and two more in the tie-break", he said. "But it's true that sometimes it maybe can help to get some emotions out and get also the stress out".

Johansson, whose player David Goffin lost to Medvedev in the Cincinnati final in August, told ST this week that Medvedev's solid groundstrokes, court coverage and unpredictable playing style will make him "dangerous for a long time going forward". He next plays 10th-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy in the quarterfinals. "I didn't feel bad", Tsitsipas said. I felt like I've played some decent tennis this week and being in a Masters 1000 final here in Shanghai is also something very special for me.

That served him well when, having squandered five match points in the second set, Zverev dusted himself down to win the third and seal a 6-3 6-7 (7-9) 6-3 victory. "Positions have changed a little bit so I think I can contest him right now".

Daniil Medvedev kept his hot streak going besting Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-6 (5), 7-5 to reach his sixth straight tournament final.

Until Friday's match, Djokovic had won 24 straight sets in Asia, a run that included last year's Shanghai Masters and the title in Tokyo last week. He won his inaugural appearance at the Japan Open last week without losing a set.

Tsitsipas has now defeated Federer, Nadal and Djokovic in 2019.

Dan Evans, who will officially become the British men's number one next week, is to link up with former coach Mark Hilton after he recently left the employment of Kyle Edmund the man Evans has usurped.

In the second semi-final, German fifth seed Alexander Zverev, fresh off his three-set last-eight defeat of Roger Federer, will face Italian No.11 seed Matteo Berrettini.

The confident Russian, through to his ninth final of the year, outlasted sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 7-6 (5), 7-5.
