Grigor Dimitrov produces incredible comeback to oust Ryan Harrison — ATP Shanghai

Grigor Dimitrov produces incredible comeback to oust Ryan Harrison — ATP Shanghai

Sixth seed Dimitrov frequently had the final say during pulsating rallies, most impressively during the final set when he kept a point alive before winning it close to the net.

"He always is very risky opponent, and I think this surface, this court helps him", Nadal said.

In the third set, Nadal saved the one break point he faced in the match in the fifth game, and broke serve in the sixth to set up victory.

The second-seeded will now play No. 16 seeded Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro, who eliminated the Swiss in the quarter-finals of the US Open. I should hit that ball with the backhand, but I chose to go with the forehand before he hit the ball. "I would like to play and be 100 per cent".

The next couple of games went past within a blink of an eye, and Harrison soon found himself serving for the set at 5-3 up.

Nadal is yet to drop serve in Shanghai.

"I'm glad to reach the semi-finals in this tournament, but to be honest now, as I say always, health is the first of all of my life", Del Potro said. "And then, two good serves for him, 5-4", the 31-year-old world no.1 Nadal said.

"Winning a lot of matches in a row, so I'm very happy for everything", Nadal said. "Of course, being able to win the US Open, Beijing, and being in the semi-finals here ... But I think he's still very young and he needs to keep learning, as he's doing now", said the Argentine, 23 in the world.

Fognini was playing the day after being handed a suspended ban from two grand slams and $96,000 (A$123,000) fine for verbally abusing a female umpire at the US Open.

The result sees the World No. 1 move into the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters where he will face 4th seed Marin Cilic.
