Del Potro dumps Zverev out of Shanghai ATP

Juan Martin del Potro keeps Roger Federer rematch hopes alive after downing furious Alexander Zverev Juan Martín del Potro continues surge to London with victory over Alexander Zverev

ALEXANDER ZVEREV confirmed his status as the new bad boy of tennis with an explosive display of racquet smashing in Shanghai.

Juan Martin del Potro showed his fighting spirit once again as he battled back from a set down to dump world No. 4 Alexander Zverev out of the Shanghai Masters. "And that's what I did for the second and the third set", the 2009 US Open champion Del Potro said.

Zverev's fury at letting the match slip became apparent in the third as he massacred his racquet as the Argentine broke for a 3-2 lead in the decider.

The German prodigy and the 29-year-old, whose career has been beset by injury, went toe to toe in the second set and the tie break was just as tight until Del Potro grabbed the crucial mini-break.

In turn, the Russian company disclosed the massive security breach, without explicitly naming Israel as the perpetrator. The Russian government has used popular antivirus software for the search of secret documents around the world.

The 16th-seeded South American beat the 20-year-old Zverev in just under two hours in the pair's first meeting, for his fourth season win in 13 matches against top-10 opponents.

Also into the quarters in Shanghai, where Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer were in action later, are sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov and Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

"I think I didn't play well the first game of the match with my serve, but when I saw the stats on the TV, and I was winning more points returning than him, but I lost the set".
