Federer storms into quarters

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer notched up contrasting victories to reach the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals on Thursday while David Ferrer fought back from a set down to knock out Andy Murray.

World number one Djokovic laboured to a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 victory over plucky Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin who matched the Serb shot for shot for most of the third round match before being
overpowered in the third set.

Two-time champion Djokovic broke Kukushkin for a 5-3 lead before closing out the first set but the Kazakh roared back into contention to stretch the contest to a decider.
