Kyle Edmund was brushed aside in straight sets by the clinical Alexander Zverev in their Shanghai Masters quarter-final.
Edmund was seeking to reach his first Masters 1000 semi-final but the world No 4 maintained his 100 per cent record against the Briton with a 6-4 6-4 victory.
Zverev took both of his break point opportunities and made only 12 unforced errors, as opposed to his opponent’s 23, to set up a last-four clash against either Novak Djokovic or Kevin Anderson.
Zverev’s latest win earns him a spot at the Nitto ATP Finals in London – Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer, Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro have already qualified.
