The Argentine's massive forehand, however, was the major defining factor in the match as he worked himself into a position to drive victor after winner past the Spaniard and clinched the semi-final in one hour, 46 minutes. But I think I've been working hard to show this tennis and to play at this level very often throughout the year.' 'If he has a good day he is very risky before he is a lefty, he serves well and he can serve some volleys', Del Potro said of his opponent, who has a lot of potential but today hit 37 unforced errors.

Having seen the 21-year-old Chung chase down everything Isner fired across the net in the second round, Ferrer was in no mood for long rallies and his plan to look for early winners paid off as he wrapped up the match in 74 minutes.

"It's never easy against David because he runs a lot and he's a fighter", del Potro said.

Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion and Auckland victor, overcame the Spaniard 6-4, 6-4 to continue his strong form from the end of last season, which included victory in Stockholm and losing the Basel final to Roger Federer.

"I tried to focus during my service game and just do what I have to do".

The Bahamas-based Shapovalov was outgunned in every aspect by del Potro, who served big and frequently unleashed his trademark forehand.

Earlier, fifth seed Bautista Agut outlasted Dutchman Robin Haase in an epic clash that took nearly three hours before the Spaniard produced an audacious backhand lob that kissed the baseline to clinch the 6-7 (7) 7-6 (3) 7-6 (5) win. "It was an unbelievable battle on the court".

"I knew he would fight until the end".

The 29-year-old, who won the title in 2016 but missed his defence last year due to illness, sunk to one knee and let out a massive yell of jubilation after he saw the ball drop in.

"The end was unbelievable when I saw the ball in I went insane, I was so happy".

"I didn't have my best serving day which didn't help, got some free points but not as many as I'd like - it's a rusty first match, you've got to get the cobwebs off".
