Djokovic outguns Anderson in Shanghai

Djokovic, 31, is on a 17-match winning streak.

The other semi-final tees up Novak Djokovic against young German star Alexander Zverev, just the second time they will have met.

Cape Town - Serbia's Novak Djokovic reached the Shanghai Masters semi-finals after beating South Africa's Kevin Anderson in straight sets on Friday.

The 20-times Grand Slam victor has produced a series of lacklustre performances in Shanghai, his first tournament since suffering a shock fourth-round defeat by John Millman at the U.S. Open last month.

Tomorrow's conditions - a rather quick hard court - is somewhat different, and I feel that their one and only head to head clash has zero relevance towards this match-up.

The impact of the meeting was so great on Eugenie she phoned her mother, Sarah Ferguson, to tell her of momentous occasion. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will be jetting off on a romantic honeymoon shortly after the wedding .

A sublime backhand pass followed by a forehand victor sealed a break to love for Zverev in the fifth game of the second set, and he duly wrapped up victory with minimal fuss.

"But also he has improved a lot and he has established himself as a top player".

Zverev needed only one opportunity to break his opponent in either set as he became the fifth player to book his place at the season-ending ATP Finals in London.

"Obviously it's great to finally officially make it and obviously be part of the eight best again, which is an elite group, which is kind of the goal for everyone at the beginning of the season", Zverev said.

Anderson had a chance to take an early lead against Djokovic but he overhit a forehand on set point in the 12th game of the match.

The A340-500 it was using at the time used a lot of fuel and eventually the route became too expensive to run. The Airbus A350-900 without a transplant will overcome 16,700 kilometers.

Zverev had a slight wobble while serving for the set but saved the only break point he faced in the match en route to clinching the first set in 34 minutes.

The victory gave the 21-year-old Zverev a tour-leading 49th match win of the year. Since the start of 2009, he has lost just four of the 63 matches... There is still a lot more tennis going on till the end of the year.

"Last year was the first time I kind of broke through to the top 10 and was a top-five player".

'I just think his mindset and movement was awesome.
