Shanghai Masters: Novak Djokovic beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in quarter-finals

Stefanos Tsitsipas celebrates

Federer has also won 28 Masters 1000 titles in his illustrious career.

"I didn't make him defend enough".

Zverev dispatched Berrettini - one of his rivals to secure a place in London - reasonably comfortably as his serve proved key, the Italian not even getting a break point in the match.

The Russian served for the match at 5-4, only for Tsitsipas to dig in and break for 5-5, before Medvedev did likewise.

Nobody should be writing the triumvirate off: the 32-year-old Djokovic is number one and the player poised to take top spot off him in the coming weeks is the 33-year-old Nadal.

It's been a disappointing week where not much has gone for us, and indeed not much has gone for the big names in the draw, with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer dumped out on Friday by young players with ambitions to dethrone the elite duo eventually.

"You have always got to play your best tennis to have a chance".

Medvedev, the world number four, is set to face Alexander Zverev in tomorrow's final after the German overcame Matteo Berrettini of Italy at the Association of Tennis Professionals Masters 1000 tournament at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena. Federer, who was given a warning for "unsportsmanlike conduct" at the end of the second set, vented at the umpire after not being told new balls were in play.

"I don't think it's right to wait because you kind of surrender when you wait", he said.

"I did say before this year and during this year in the beginning that Sascha (Zverev) was the best in our "Next Gen" group", the world number four said.

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer have been knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the Rolex Shanghai Masters.

Tsitsipas, ranked seventh in the world, has also qualified to make his debut at the ATP Finals. Medvedev in particular has won more matches than anybody, and reached his first Grand Slam final at the US Open, requiring Rafael Nadal to take the decider before eventually putting him down.

"He's different this year than previous years", said a wary Zverev.

"He had the high-quality tennis and he played well after his serve". Medvedev is aware that he will need to break new ground to get his hands on the Shanghai trophy, but that challenge is something the World No. 4 has become rather accustomed to in recent months.

"He deserved the victory", Djokovic said of Tsitsipas.

Fabio Fognini had said before his quarter-final loss to Medvedev that the latter was the worst opponent to play at the moment as he was "really dangerous", an assessment that former pro Thomas Johansson agreed with.
