Juan Martín del Potro continues surge to London with victory over Alexander Zverev

Juan Martin del Potro keeps Roger Federer rematch hopes alive after downing furious Alexander Zverev

"I feel like I could have done great in this tournament if I get through this match".

And he underlined his status as the man to beat in Shanghai as he battered the Italian Fognini 6-3, 6-1.

Roger Federer, seeded second to Nadal, also was not detained for long as he defeated Ukrainian qualifier Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 6-2.

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).

"Of course it's good news, and especially in this part of the season", Nadal said.

Federer, the Swiss world No. 2, plays Richard Gasquet in the last eight today after Gasquet outlasted fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon in a marathon three-setter 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-3.

Watch Princess Nokia destroy a racist dude on the subway
Princess Nokia took to Twitter to talk about the incident, proudly stating that yes, she did throw hot soup in that guys face. He said he used the word to "mak [e] a point" and that he feels "bad" but he's "not that sorry".


But for the world No.4 Zverev it was a win that got away. But 16th seeded Del Potro found his form in the second set, scored 5 love games and levelled the set-score with a 7-5 victory in the tie-break.

"I just had to be there (on those match points)", Dimitrov said.

Zverev, who has already secured a berth in the ATP World Tour Finals in London, fired 22 Aces in the match, but couldn't find solutions when his opponent served.

Del Potro will John Isner of the US or Viktor Troicki of Serbia in the last eight on Friday. But apart from that, I think from the baseline and me serving, I think I did well.

Fourth-seeded Marin Cilic will face Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain.
