Jared Donaldson sets up meeting with Rafael Nadal in Shanghai

Shanghai [China], Oct 12: World number one Rafael Nadal and Swiss maestro Roger Federer will aim to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters when they play their respective last-16 rounds here later today. "Of course finishing the year at No. 1 is something a little bit different", Nadal said, "And, yeah, if that happens, it will be a great achievement but there remains a lot to do and I need to play well".

The top-ranked Spaniard and No. 2 Roger Federer both advanced by winning their opening matches in straight sets. I think I am able to adapt my game to the new times.

The 36-year-old returned to action in June when the grass court season began at the Eastbourne Open and went on to win further titles at Halle and a record eighth Wimbledon title. The 19-time Grand Slam champion, coming back on the ATP tour after a lengthy break, defeated Argentina's Diego Schwartzman 7-6. So I hope that I will feel the benefit now while other guys are maybe getting a bit exhausted. He was serving well, making the right decisions. That being said, the under 2.5 sets is playing well and as a result that is the bet that I am going to suggest for this game.

Nadal and Federer are both in contention for the season-ending No. 1 ranking, although only Nadal can clinch that honor this week.

"It is not my first time to get injured and then win tournaments later", he added, "Of course it is a nice feeling to win, but is a feeling that I already had a few times in my career".

Earlier, sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov saved three match points before finally defeating Ryan Harrison 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6). He won the Australian Open beating Nadal in the final and went on to complete a sunshine double by winning the Masters Series titles at Indian Wells and Miami. "At (my) match point, I just had to make my first serve because I knew he would go for it if not".
