I like his demeanour, he is a great fighter and I like playing against those type of players.' Federer also analyzed his win over Daniil Medvedev: 'It was extremely hard, that is why I was very happy at the end.

He will play the Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori in the last eight, while Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev are also through, albeit with far less hassle.

Bautista Agut had never taken a set off the defending champion heading into the contest but he clawed his way back from a set and a break down to push Federer all the way.

The only other time the second-seeded Djokovic played Cecchinato was in the French Open quarterfinals, where the Italian upset him in four sets.

Bautista Agut, a finalist here in 2016, finally offered Federer an opening to take control by surrendering his serve in the ninth game of the third set.

Federer said that two stern encounters had set him up nicely for Nishikori on Friday.

Juan Martin del Potro displayed his battling qualities to overcome Richard Gasquet.

Third-seeded Del Potro, who has been playing with a cold throughout the week, was playing Borna Coric when he fell near the end of the first set.

"It was a very good week for me in Beijing", Basilashvili said.

Djokovic enjoyed a measure of revenge as he booked his spot in the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals with a comfortable 6-4 6-0 victory against Marco Cecchinato.

It was part of a wretched run of form Djokovic suffered after elbow surgery in February.

But the world number three exploded back to life mid-season, winning Wimbledon, the Cincinnati Masters and US Open.

Djokovic will play South Africa's seventh seed Kevin Anderson. The Spaniard is not in Shanghai due to injury.

The tennis season reaches its climax with the ATP World Tour finals in November. "I am feeling very fresh and have a lot of energy so I'll have no excuses". He will play Alex de Minaur in the last-16 after his 6-4 6-3 victory against Benoit Paire.

The German fourth seed will face 11th seed Kyle Edmund in the last eight.
