Grigor Dimitrov has got inside Rafael Nadal's head - Annabel Croft

ATP Shanghai Dimitrov saves 3 MP's against Harrison! Zverev wins

"I felt good in the first match", the 36-year-old said.

The second-seeded will now play No. 16 seeded Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro, who eliminated the Swiss in the quarter-finals of the US Open. However, he was unable to convert three break points in the lengthy fourth game, allowing Harrison to narrowly get past his tough challenge for the tight service hold.

"I'm a bit pissed off because I feel like I played well and that's the upsetting part of it - I could have done great in this tournament".

The world No 1 persevered 6-4 6-7 6-3 to book a semi-final with Marin Cilic, and record a second win over Dimitrov in as many weeks.

The next couple of games went past within a blink of an eye, and Harrison soon found himself serving for the set at 5-3 up.

Rafael Nadal has tied Andre Agassi for sixth place on the list of Open Era wins by reaching the Shanghai Masters semi-finals.

The world No.2 was even swifter than Nadal, taking exactly an hour to see off Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4 6-2.

That isn't the only time his fun has been spoiled by the Spaniard, either, with Dimitrov reaching his first Grand-Slam semi-final at the start of the year at the Australian Open - only for Nadal to be waiting, again defeating him by a single set.

The 16-times grand slam victor, who beat Dimitrov in three sets in the China Open semi-finals last week, fired 32 winners and won two crucial breaks to prevail in two and a half hours at the Qi Zhong Centre. The two pushed each other to the brink, as exemplified by the stellar point in just the third game.

Del Potro received lengthy treatment to the area - which has undergone surgery in the past - before battling through 4-6 6-1 6-4.

The 2014 US Open champion knocked out Spain's unseeded hopeful Albert Ramos, 6-3, 6-4.
