Shanghai top seed and defending champion Roger Federer plays Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals later on Friday.

Djokovic, a former World No. 1 and a three-time Shanghai champion, advances to his fourth final here after knocking out Zverev, world No. 5, reports Efe news.

Serving for the match, Coric perhaps showed a first sign of nerves with a weak forehand into net to fall 15-30 down, but he responded with a big unreturned first serve, an ace and a forehand victor to send his illustrious opponent crashing out.

A miss-hit Federer forehand gifted Coric the opening break of the second set for a 2-0 lead, before Coric pulled off an excellent lob and smashed an ace down the tee to move clear at 5-3.

"That's it", Federer said.

"Because in November I do not want to play tennis anymore", the world number five said, speaking at the Shanghai Masters after beating Georgia's hard-hitting Nikoloz Basilashvili. "I served, I think, 80 percent in that second set and got broken twice".

The 31-year-old Serbian is in imperious form and this was his 17th ATP victory in a row, as he taught rising German star Zverev a harsh lesson.

The second seed is homing in on injured Rafael Nadal's year-end number one ranking.

"It means a lot because I have kind of played only the biggest tournaments", Zverev said. "From that standpoint, I feel like I found a rhythm".

"It's great to finally officially make it and again be a part of the best eight, which is an elite group", the 21-year-old said.

Zverev needed only one opportunity to break his opponent in either set as he became the fifth player to book his place at the season-ending ATP Finals in London. Zverev, now under the tutelage of Ivan Lendl, said he is pleased with his overall progress, even if a maiden Grand Slam remains elusive.

It's going to require that plus more to stay there.' The Basel native also spoke about what he did after the US Open.

"I mean, my standard level nowadays is better than in the previous year, that's for sure".
