Dimitrov and Nadal sizzle in Shanghai

Dimitrov and Nadal sizzle in Shanghai

World number one Rafael Nadal needed three sets to defeat Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and reach the last four of the Shanghai Masters.

Sixth seed Dimitrov frequently had the final say during pulsating rallies, most impressively during the final set when he kept a point alive before winning it close to the net.

Nadal, who extended his winning streak to 15 matches, pegged Dimitrov back with relentless baseline hitting to take the first set easily.

"I played a very good match, I don't know how many mistakes I made, but very few", said the 16-time Grand Slam victor and top seed in Shanghai. The conditions have been different today than my two previous matches. "I think it was a great battle between two players who are playing all the time very focused". The remainder of the match then remained on serve, and the victor had to be decided by a cruel final-set tiebreak.

Earlier in the day, World No. 5 Cilic became the first man to reach the semifinals of the Shanghai Masters when he brushed aside Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

"He always is very unsafe opponent, and I think this surface, this court helps him", Nadal said. "It was really a fast-court match".

"It will be a tough one. I would like to play and be 100 per cent". "If not, I will be nearly dead because he is going to go for the shots".

The world No.2 broke Gasquet at 5-5 to gain the advantage and went on to take the first set. I made bad decision going for the forehand in the 4-2 of the tie-break.

The second-seeded will now play No. 16 seeded Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro, who eliminated the Swiss in the quarter-finals of the US Open.
