Nadal equals Agassi record with win in Shanghai

Nadal equals Agassi record with win in Shanghai

Del Potro is due to play Roger Federer in the semifinals Saturday.

Del Potro tumbled on the court at 2-2 in the third set against Viktor Troicki of Serbia and instinctively tried to break the fall with his left wrist.

The world number two claimed two more breaks in the next to seal the deal in an hour and 18 minutes.

Former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro won the match of the day by stopping third seed Alexander Zverev, recovering from losing the opener to win 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4.

"I'm glad to reach the semi-finals in this tournament, but to be honest now, as I say always, health is the first of all of my life", Del Potro said.

Fognini was playing the day after being handed a suspended ban from two grand slams and $96,000 (A$123,000) fine for verbally abusing a female umpire at the US Open.

In the quarterfinals, Nadal will play sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria, who got past Sam Querrey of the US 6-3, 7-6 (3).

Nadal, the top seed, has now booked a semi-final date tomorrow with Croatia's fourth seed Marin Čilić.

It looked like Nadal, leading 4-2 in the second set tie-break, would win in straight sets, but the Bulgarian reeled off five straight points to level things up.

"It was a very tough match".

Dimitrov, at 2-2 in the decisive set, had Nadal's back to the wall and forced the Spaniard to survive a break point.

Dimitrov, chasing a spot at the season-ending ATP Finals in London, beat American Sam Querrey to set up a Chinese reunion with Nadal. "The game where he broke me, I was up 40-15, and I was just unfocused there".

There was a scare when the 29-year-old, who has suffered years of wrist injuries that have threatened his career, took a nasty tumble at 2-2 in the deciding set against unseeded Troicki.
