Grigor Dimitrov ends rally with spectacular drop-shot against Rafael Nadal

Shanghai Masters: Rafael Nadal beats Grigor Dimitrov to reach semi-finals

Juan Martin del Potro headed to a hospital for a scan on his left wrist after a nasty fall while winning his quarterfinal at the Shanghai Masters on Friday.

One of the few matches unaffected by the rain on a gloomy day at the Shanghai Rolex Masters, Grigor Dimitrov had to dig deep to prevail over the risky Ryan Harrison in the second round, saving three match points to take the tough victory.

Federer subsequently eased past Richard Gasquet in straight sets to book a last-four clash, but it remains to be seen whether Del Potro will be fit to face the Swiss on Saturday.

The Spaniard got the mini-break for a 3-0 lead in the tiebreak, but sixth seed Dimitrov scrapped back to level, and then stunned Nadal to clinch the tiebreak. "If not, I will be nearly dead because he is going to go for the shots".

"It's better like this than having long matches, you save, a little bit more, the body", Nadal said. "I would like to play and be 100 per cent".

The Argentine recovered from a slow start to triumph 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. Nonetheless, his superb serving eventually got him through the mentally-draining service game, successfully claiming the first set 6-3 after just 35 minutes of play. "Of course, being able to win the U.S. Open, Beijing, and being in the semifinals here ..."

Fourth-seeded Cilic stands between Nadal and a second ATP final in two weeks.

"I think (it was) a great battle between two players who are playing all the time very focused, very intense points".

"I felt good in the first match", the 36-year-old said.

The 2014 US Open champion knocked out Spain's unseeded hopeful Albert Ramos, 6-3, 6-4.
