But for the world No.4 Zverev it was a win that got away.

Juan Martín del Potro is making a late run to qualify as one of the chosen eight for next month's ATP Tour Finals in London after his determined fight-back to beat Alexander Zverev at the Shanghai Rolex Masters.

"I think I didn't play well the first game of the match with my serve, but when I saw the stats on the TV, and I was winning more points returning than him, but I lost the set. I just had to find my way through the whole match".

It was del Potro's only break of serve for the match as the world No.23 held strong to close out the match five games later.

Del Potro, the 2013 Shanghai Masters runner-up, will face either American no. 12 seed John Isner or Viktor Troicki of Serbia on Friday.

The talented 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.

“Right now Im very pissed off, as you can probably tell, ” said Zverev afterwards, having smashed the racquet on the court, then trodden on it, and brutalised it further as he stomped back to his chair. "I feel like I could have done great in this tournament if I get through this match". I said to me, Okay, you're playing good.

"He has everything to be in the top positions in the future, but these things happen".
