  • Rod Laver could have won as much as Roger Federer says Rafael Nadal

One player who will not be in the quarter-finals is Juan Martin del Potro after he hobbled out of the tournament. Nevertheless, the top seed insisted he was content with how he's playing.

Federer was made to work hard for his 6-3 2-6 6-4 win against Roberto Bautista Agut to make it eight wins in a row against the Spaniard.

Djokovic's second-round victory improved his ideal record against the 41st-ranked Chardy to 12-0 in matches played, and 28-0 in sets won.

"It's more interesting for the fans as to whether I get there".

Bautista Agut, a finalist here in 2016, finally offered Federer an opening to take control by surrendering his serve in the ninth game of the third set.

However, the Swiss is a great champion for a reason and he found a late surge to rip the match away from his opponent to set up a quarter-final clash with Kei Nishikori.

Australian Matthew Ebden upset sixth-seeded Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-7 (8), 7-6 (4) in a almost three-hour match.

The Argentine world No 4, who had already been suffering with a virus, lost his footing at 5-5 in the first set against Croatia's Borna Coric.

The third-seeded del Potro trailed in the first set and in the tiebreaker but rebounded both times to beat Richard Gasquet 7-5, 7-6 (7).

The 30-year-old Del Potro had lengthy treatment and strapping put on his knee, but conceded the match after losing the first set 7-5.

Djokovic enjoyed a measure of revenge as he booked his spot in the quarter-finals with a 6-4, 6-0 demolition of Marco Cecchinato.

"It was a very good week for me in Beijing", Basilashvili said.

Roger Federer had to overcome a second-set stutter.

The 31-year-old Serb was playing his first match on the ATP tour since lifting his 14th Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open last month and looked in complete control as he won 34 of 40 points on his first-serve to book a place in the last 16.

He will take on seventh-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa, whom he leads 6-1 on head-to-head.

Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany also advanced to the quarterfinals by pasting Alex de Minaur of Australia 6-1, 6-4.

The German fourth seed will next play 11th seed Kyle Edmund.
