Medvedev extends hot streak to set up Shanghai final with Zverev

Del Potro 'Roger Federer Rafael Nadal Djokovic made me a better player'

"Making six [finals] in a row, including three Masters 1000's and one Grand Slam, is something I could never dream of, to be honest", said Medvedev.

In another quarter-final clash, the third-seed Daniil Medvedev beat Fabio Fognini 6-3 7-6 (7-4) and Medvedevwill be Tsitsipas' semi-final opponent. Medvedev and Berrettini are 23, Tsitsipas is 21 and Zverev is 22. The German also exhibited similar body language on Friday against Federer and, despite losing five match points in the second set, achieved his first Top 10 win of the year with a 6-3, 6-7 (7), 6-3 win."I told him at the net that he showed great character, that he was strong".

Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece reacts as he plays against Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation in their men's singles semifinals match at the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament at Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center in Shanghai, China, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019.

Since Wimbledon, Medvedev has now reached the final of the Washington Open, Rogers Cup, Cincinnati Masters, US Open, St Petersburg Open and Shanghai Masters. "I didn't feel bad", Tsitsipas said.

"I don't know when it's going to come".

The history was with Medvedev but there was nothing in it as he and Tsitsipas entered the first-set tie break after 43 minutes of high-quality tennis. I don't know if I'm going to be able to beat him the next time or the time after that one, but I know there's going to be a time where I'm going to find opportunities and beat him.

In the other semi-final on Saturday, Germany's Zverev eased past Matteo Berrettini of Italy 6-3, 6-4 in a showdown between two more budding talents.

Zverev, who will seek a 4th Masters title, has won all four meetings with Medvedev. I hope tomorrow that will not change. The Swiss player said: "Very special here in Shanghai, Fans try to unite and sit all together maybe talk to tournament, you don't see it often like that on the tour, like it to see them basically wearing the swiss uniform, they are there when I need them, probably made difference today".

In an interview with AFP last month in Zhuhai, southern China, the world number seven gave an insight into the mindset which propelled him to those victories.

"I don't mean to be rude at all, but it's just boring".
