SHANGHAI (AP) – Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev has secured a spot in the ATP Finals next month with a 6-4, 6-4 quarterfinal win over Kyle Edmund on Friday at the Shanghai Masters.
Zverev has beaten Edmund all four times they’ve played. On Friday, he saved the one break point he faced and took advantage of the two break points the British player offered to secure passage to the semifinal.
The victory over Edmund also gave the 21-year-old Zverev a tour-leading 49th match victory of the year. Dominic Thiem, who lost his opening match this week, sits in second place with 48 match wins this season. Zverev will play either second-seeded Djokovic or seventh-seeded Kevin Anderson in the semifinals.
