Zverev awaits in-form Edmund
Kyle Edmund has booked his place in the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals after a edging out Chile's Nicolas Jarry 7-6 6-3.
The Brit continued his recent fine form in the Far East on Thursday as he got the better of his South American opponent in an hour and 30 minutes, surviving an aerial bombardment to advance.
Jarry served 17 aces in total but Edmund was able to record three breaks of serve during the match as his return game proved up to scratch.
The world number 14 edged a tight first set on the tie-break before having his serve broken to fall 2-0 behind in the second, only to recover as he reached his second Masters quarter-final of the year.
The 23-year-old will face fourth seed Alexander Zverev in the last eight after the German breezed past Alex de Minaur 6-1 6-4 earlier in the day.
The 21-year-old leads 3-0 in his head-to-head record with Edmund, most recently getting the better of him at the Italian Open in May, and will be looking for the one win he nows needs to secure qualification for the end-of-year ATP World Tour Finals in London.
