Kyle Edmund and Alexander set for Shanghai Masters quarter-final clash

Alexander Zverev celebrates at Shanghai Masters

Kyle Edmund has moved into the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals, where he will meet German ace Alexander Zverev.

The British number one shaded a tight first set against Nicolas Jarry before taking control of the second to ease to a 7-6 6-3 win.

Edmund did have to battle back from 0-2 down in the second but he ultimately had too much for the Chilean.

Next up for Edmund is a clash with the world number five, Alexander Zverev, after he blitzed past Alex de Minaur.

The German recorded his 48th tour-level win of 2018 – a joint high with Dominic Thiem – with a routine 6-1 6-4 victory.
