Nadal overcomes Dimitrov to make Shanghai Masters semi

Associated Press

Rafael Nadal has tied Andre Agassi for sixth place on the list of Open Era wins by reaching the Shanghai Masters semi-finals.

From 2-5 down and trailing by a double mini-break in the tiebreak, Dimitrov roared back into the match as he saved three straight match points from a 3-6 deficit, eventually claiming the hard-fought victory in three tough sets. I'm going to the hospital to see what the MRI says, and what the doctor says.

"It's better like this than having long matches, you save, a little bit more, the body", Nadal said.

Del Potro ended up breaking Troicki's serve in that fifth game and prevailed 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

This year's French Open and US Open champion did not have it all his own way at the Association of Tennis Professionals Masters 1000 tournament, winning 6-3, 6-7, 6-3.

Roger Federer, the only man who can deny Nadal the year-end world number one ranking, powered past Frenchman Richard Gasquet 7-5 6-4.

The victory ensured that the pair, who have won two Grand Slams and six titles together, qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals in London next month.

The final set was full of momentum shifts, first starting with Dimitrov's break of serve in the opening game as he carried over the momentum from the second set. "Of course, being able to win the U.S. Open, Beijing, and being in the semifinals here ... But I think he's still very young and he needs to keep learning, as he's doing now", said the Argentine, 23 in the world. "We'll see tomorrow if I can have another good day".

Fourth seed Cilic has reached the last four without dropping a set and overcame Nadal's countryman Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-3 6-4, although the Spaniard did managed to break Cilic's serve for the first time in the competition at 3-3 in the second set.
