  • Point penalty causes Roger Federer to lose his cool

The next generation of youngsters made their mark at the Shanghai Masters as Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev knocked out former champions Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer respectively, booking their semi-final spots on Friday.

Sixth seed Tsitsipas battled back from a set down to defeat top seed Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-3 to register his first victory over a reigning world number one.

The sixth seed won his first encounter with the world number one at the Rogers Cup a year ago and gained revenge for a defeat in their second meeting in Madrid this season, having also beaten Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in 2019.

Zverev will next meet Italy's 23-year-old Matteo Berrettini, who defeated China Open champion Dominic Thiem 7-6 (8) 6-4.

In contrast, he is yet to overcome the 22-year-old Zverev in four attempts.

"[Stefanos] had the high-quality tennis and he played very well after his serve", the Serb added on the ATP Tour website.

"He won three Masters when none of us were even close to doing this". I mean, he did serve well, credit to him, but just wasn't pleased with the way I played.

Despite winning his 11th career title in Geneva, and reaching the Acapulco final, getting to the semi-finals of a Masters event is arguably his best result of the year so far. Federer, who was given a warning for "unsportsmanlike conduct" at the end of the second set, vented at the umpire after not being told new balls were in play. "But he's been playing some fantastic tennis, sixth final in a row, US Open finalist, won Cincinnati", said Zverev.

Opening the schedule is Tsitsipas against Medvedev, with the Russian, Medvedev actually taking a 4-0 head to head lead into the clash, although Tsitsipas has taken a set in every single clash.

"He's different this year than previous years", said a wary Zverev. "The last few months he's probably the best player in the world".

Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece reacts as he plays against Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation in their men's singles semifinals match at the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament at Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center in Shanghai, China, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019.

With Rafael Nadal absent from the tournament with a wrist injury, none of the vaunted "Big Three" will win the title on Sunday.
