Wu Di advances at Shanghai Masters
    2017-October-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINA’S Wu Di advanced to the second round of the Shanghai Masters with a shock 7-6 (2), 6-2 victory over Jeremy Chardy of France on Monday night.

The in-form Wu broke Chardy in his first service game after the Frenchman committed two double faults. Both players held their serve before Wu broke Chardy again in the seventh game to take a 5-2 lead. He then sealed victory on his first match point.

“I didn’t think too much today coming into the match,” Wu said.

“I served well today. It felt like a dream. I think I have used up all my ace quota for this year today,” joked the Shanghai native, whose second-round opponent will be either Steve Johnson or Nick Kyrgios.

Meanwhile, Juan Martin del Potro saved four break points in the decider to battle past Georgian qualifier Nikoloz Basilashvili on Monday.

The Argentine, who prevailed 6-2 3-6 6-4, looked on course for a routine win after taking the first set in 23 minutes but world number 59 Basilashvili pounced on his errors in the next to level the match.

Attacking Del Potro’s serve at 4-4 in the third, Basilashvili earned four chances to break and serve for the match. But the 2013 finalist defended resolutely and switched gears to set up a meeting with Russian teenager Andrey Rublev.

South Korea’s Chung Hyeon eased past world number 13 Roberto Bautista Agut, last year’s runner-up, 6-4, 6-3 to equal the best victory of his career.

World number 60 Chung, who beat David Goffin when the Belgian was ranked 13th in Montreal this year, next faces Richard Gasquet.
