Edmund will play fourth seed Alexander Zverev in the last eight, after he beat Australia's Alex de Minaur 6-1 6-4.

The world number five faced tough resistance from Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili in the match opener, but managed to seize the initiative to claim a two-set victory 7-5 6-4.

Zverev's opponent arrived in Shanghai after beating del Potro in Beijing to win his second career title. "He's almost top 30 and obviously playing great tennis, as well. Probably the hardest-hitting player I have ever played against".

Zverev said that Basilashvili, who is up to a career-high ranking of 23, "knows how to play, definitely". He must reach at least the Shanghai semi-finals in order to join Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Potro and Roger Federer at The O2 in London from 11-18 November.

Clinton: Civility starts by electing Democrats
Clinton, meanwhile, has been striking a more partisan tone, blaming Republicans for the chaos that has engulfed American politics. Former Attorney General Eric Holder also said civility was off the table in our current political climate.

Zverev is playing in Shanghai without his coach, Ivan Lendl, who was in Beijing last week.

"I got lucky that I won, but tomorrow will be a different day".

He further added, "you don't want to have them leave feeling like, oh my god, like I was not appreciated or I was not liked or it was actually a frightful thing, you know?"

"He's playing too much golf", said Zverev. Lendl is due to return to the tour before the end of the season. His first, however, also came earlier this year at Hamburg. "I did everything that I needed to win", said Zverev. Obviously, it's not going to be an easy match, especially on this surface. But I think I played with all my strength in the important moments of the match.
