Shanghai Masters : Rafael Nadal & Roger Federer into semi-finals, Del Potro injured his wrist

Federer beat Richard Gasquet in the quarters and is set to meet Juan Martin del Potro tomorrow.That comes after Del Potro beat Victor Troicki in three sets today to book his place in the last four.

Rafael Nadal and Marin Cilic meet in the other semi-final  – but that could be the only game played on Saturday in Shanghai.

The 36-year-old Federer was relatively untroubled as he eased to a 7-5, 6-4 victory over the unseeded Gasquet.

He is scheduled to face Del Potro in the last four, although the Argentine’s participation is in doubt after he injured a wrist in his quarter-final victory.

Del Potro injured his wrist today and may now have to withdraw from the tournament.It would mean Federer has an extra day to prepare for a potential final with his arch enemy Nadal.

The Argentine fell on his left hand at the start of the third set of this tightly-contested quarter-final.
