  • Rafael Nadal Storms Into China Open Quarter-Final

The favourite Rafael Nadal qualified for the semi-finals of the tournament in Beijing with John Isner, sixth head series, 6-4, 7-6 (0).

World number eight Dimitrov battled back from a set down to force a decider, but lost his way as 31-year-old Nadal broke three times.

Despite his advancing years Nadal is enjoying a stellar season following a catalogue of injuries in previous seasons, winning five titles including the US Open and French Open.

Isner was impressive in blasting his way past Argentina's Leonardo Mayer 6-0, 6-3 and Nadal said: "Tomorrow will be a tough one against Isner, he's playing unbelievably well".

In the third set, Nadal proved to be too strong starting with an immediate break on a curling forehand into the open court.

"It's an important victory for me, of course, against a player that arrived here playing so well, winning two great matches".

In contrast, Zverev smashed his racquet on the floor, earning a warning from the umpire, when Kyrgios grabbed the decisive break in the second set. I think on return I did well. If you don't use them against players like Rafa, I mean, you're going to pay for it.
