DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Juan Martin del Potro fought back to beat rac­quet-smash­ing Alexan­der Zverev and Rafael Nadal blew away Fabio Fognini to reach the Shang­hai Masters quar­ter-finals on Thurs­day.

Gutsy Del Potro re­cov­ered from a set down to win 3-6 7-6 (7/5) 6-4 against ris­ing star Zverev and will next play Vik­tor Troicki or John Is­ner.

World num­ber one Nadal plays sixth seed Grigor Dim­itrov as he pur­sues one of the few tour­na­ments to have eluded him.

The 20-year-old Zverev was go­ing af­ter his sixth ti­tle of a break­through sea­son and was com­fort­able in the first set against Ar­gen­tine Del Potro, the 2009 US Open cham­pion and 16th seed.
