Medvedev reaches sixth consecutive final at Shanghai Masters

Medvedev reaches sixth consecutive final at Shanghai Masters

Zverev, who received plenty of coaching and words of encouragement from Federer when the pair teamed up at the Laver Cup, added: "Emotions in sport are great, I didn't know what was happening with the umpire, I didn't pay close attention".

Tsitsipas had a first break-point opportunity in the seventh game, but the 16-time grand slam champion prevented the world number seven from getting back on serve and took the opening set in just over half an hour. Federer, who was given a warning for "unsportsmanlike conduct" at the end of the second set, vented at the umpire after not being told new balls were in play.

Federer has also won 28 Masters 1000 titles in his illustrious career.

Federer followed Djokovic out of the competition by losing a dramatic last eight clash 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 to Alexander Zverev.

When asked about the point penalty after the match, Federer didn't want to go into any detail.

"So you could write on Twitter, you mean?" Federer answered. "No, it would be nice to write something nice once also about the game".

Zverev ended 11th-seeded Italian Matteo Berrettini's run by taking their semifinal 6-3, 6-4, ending the match on an ace, one of 11 he had.

It's been a disappointing week where not much has gone for us, and indeed not much has gone for the big names in the draw, with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer dumped out on Friday by young players with ambitions to dethrone the elite duo eventually. "It's exciting. They're great". It's really open now for the finish of this tournament. The Greek player defeated Djokovic in their first meeting at the 2018 Toronto tournament and Djokovic won their match in Madrid this season.

Tsitsipas advanced with a win over Djokovic. It was an outstanding match between two elite players but Tsitsipas showed his quality to cause a major upset.

Victory confirms Tsitsipas' debut at next month's ATP Finals in London.

The confident Russian, through to his ninth final of the year, outlasted sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 7-6 (5), 7-5.

One victory away from reaching a sixth straight final. The only time he lost a hard-court match after winning the first set was against Gael Monfils in Rotterdam.

He then played his first singles match in August at the Cincinnati Masters but lost in the first round.

Prior to Friday's match, Fognini said Medvedev was one of the most unsafe players to face.
