Edmund will play fourth seed Alexander Zverev in the last eight, after he beat Australia's Alex de Minaur 6-1 6-4.

Kyle Edmund dispatched Chile's Nicolas Jarry in straight sets to book a Shanghai Masters quarter-final clash with Alexander Zverev.

Zverev's opponent arrived in Shanghai after beating del Potro in Beijing to win his second career title.

The two-time ATP World Tour finalist, now 26-24 on the year, is a contender to qualify for the 2018 Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan from 6-10 November.

"Obviously he's playing the best tennis of his life, winning in Beijing, and obviously he had a very good match yesterday, as well. Probably the hardest-hitting player I have ever played against".

Zverev started the match strongly but was aided by De Minaur who produced several uncharacteristic errors to surrender the first set in quick time.

But under pressure from the 32-year-old Gasquet, the third seed belatedly found his rhythm, coming from behind in both sets to win 7-5, 7-6 (9/7). "I have been talking with the doctors every day".

Zverev said that Basilashvili, who is up to a career-high ranking of 23, "knows how to play, definitely". Image sourceThough I do feel bad for the poor boy, I've got to admit this clip made me laugh.

"He's playing too much golf", said Zverev.

In an interview, Swiss Tennis legend Roger Federer had said that the ball boys and ball girls need to be respected by players. "I played every single point as if there was no tomorrow".
