Federer and Thiem into Shanghai Masters quarter-finals

Roger Federer battled through a tough opening set before defeating David Goffin 7-6(7) 6-4 to reach the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters.

The second-seeded Swiss, winner of the title in 2014 and 2017, was pushed hard by the 13th seed from Belgium in the first set. Goffin broke Federer’s serve to lead 6-5, but Federer broke back in the 12th game, saving three set points before going into the tiebreak. The Belgian went 5-2 ahead in the tiebreak, with Federer saving two more set points before clinching the tiebreak 9-7 on his third set point. In the second set, Federer broke in the seventh game to lead 4-3, eventually serving out to win after one hour 55 minutes of play and set up a quarter-final clash with Alexander Zverev of Germany who eased past Russia’s Andrey Rublev 6-0 7-6(4).
