Juan Martin del Potro has roared into the semi-finals of the China Open after beating Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic.

The Argentinian was in fine form, firing 12 aces to help him to a 6-3 6-0 rout.

“I’ve been training hard to play at this level,” said Del Potro.

“Today, everything worked good, starting from my serve, from my forehands and backhands.

“That is the game I need to go far in this tournament.”

Del Potro will now face Fabio Fognini, who beat Marton Fucsovics 6-4 6-4. It’s a match he admits will be a challenge.

“It’s going to be a difficult one,” Del Potro, who has a 1-1 win-loss record against Fognini, added.

“Fabio beat me in the Mexico final this year, he’s playing very well already.”

Kyle Edmund is also into the last four, after he beat Dusan Lajovic 6-3 7-6.

The British number one, who is still seeking his first ATP title, will play Nikoloz Basilashvili.
