Del Potro turfs out Shanghai racquet-smasher Zverev

Del Potro turfs out Shanghai racquet-smasher Zverev”

Juan Martin del Potro showed flashes of his best as the Argentine upset Shanghai Masters third seed Alexander Zverev 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 to reach the quarter-finals.

Zverev was going after his sixth title of an outstanding season and was comfortable in the first set against Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion and 16th seed. Gasquet, available at [1.65] now on the Exchange, has won seven of their eight career clashes, and traders may be interested to know that in non-exhibition head to head matches, Gasquet has broken Simon an incredible 38 times in 77 service games. "I was feeling good the whole match, even coming out of the first set, which he was playing well". "This was a positive for me looking to the future".

In the last 12 months on hard court, Zverev has held serve 85.8% compared to Del Potro's 83.5%, and broken opponents 22.1% compared to 19.7%, so the German youngster both has better stats on the surface, and a bigger scope for improvement. That didn't satisfy his anger so he kept smashing the racket courtside until it was a mangled mess.

"Those are the matches I really want to win", Dimitrov said.

On the basis of his victory over Zverev, nobody should rule out Del Potro's London credentials. "The game where he broke me I was up 40-15 and I was just unfocused there".

"I saw his frustration, for sure", he said.

Also on Thursday, Grigor Dimitrov continued to impress as he beat Sam Querrey 6-3 7-6 (7-3).
