Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina produced one of his best performances of the tennis season here on Thursday, overcoming a one-set deficit to beat third-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 to reach the Shanghai Rolex Masters quarter-finals.
Zverev all but handed the match to del Potro when he dropped a crucial service game midway through the fifth set, hitting a cross-court backhand into the net. "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".
Del Porto got to the US Open semi final last month where he lost to world No1 Rafael Nadal after winning the first set. That didn't satisfy his anger so he kept smashing the racket courtside until it was a mangled mess.
Del Potro, a 2013 Shanghai finalist, was aware he made a likely permanent impact by breaking Zverev's serve.
"For me, it's impossible to lose a match when I've only been broken one time", Zverev said.
"I just had to be there (on those match points)", Dimitrov said.
I was just unfocused there. I'm a bit pissed off about that, because I feel like I played well and I feel like that's the upsetting part. "He has everything to be in the top of the game".
