Novak Djokovic remains on course to defend his Shanghai Masters title

Novak Djokovic celebrates winning in Shanghai

"If some top players like Fabio can say this about me, shows that I'm on the good way, I'm playing good, and it's not easy to play against me, " Medvedev said.

The 248th-ranked Pospisil, from Vancouver, lost his bid to become the third qualifier ever to make the Shanghai quarter-finals.

That came amid a run of nine successive points for Djokovic, who swiftly hit the front in set two as he looked to snuff out any lingering chances of a fightback from the American. "But it's true that sometimes it maybe can help to get some emotions out and get also the stress out".

The Canadian, who had dismissed the United States' Frances Tiafoe 6-4, 6-2 in the first round, was hoping to go one better than his compatriot Félix Auger-Aliassime, who had fallen to an agonizing 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3) defeat to former junior rival Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece earlier in the day.

"I think [he's] the worst player I can play at the moment", Fognini said of Medvedev. Khachanov had won their first career meeting in three sets at the China Open quarter-finals in Beijing.

"Second and third set I started off very well, but then I wasn't sharp".

He was beaten at Flushing Meadows by Rafael Nadal in five sets.

Despite the outcome, Federer didn't feel in control of their round-of-16 match.

Yeah, I never really felt like I had the upper hand over David today. I have had a good season and served well at the end.

Federer will play fifth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany on Friday in the quarter-finals. He would eventually take the second, closing out the match 6-3, 6-3.

The market suggests, and my model agrees, that it's going to take more than this to beat Djokovic tomorrow, and Novak is likely going to have a real off-day if Tsitsipas is to cause a shock result. He won his inaugural appearance at the Japan Open last week without losing a set.

Defending champion Djokovic was flawless at times on Thursday in a clinical display, controlling Isner's powerful serve. "He's got one of the biggest serves of all time".

Italy's Matteo Berrettini faces Dominic Thiem after beating Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (5) 6-4.
