Novak Djokovic reached the quarterfinals of the Shanghai Masters on Thursday after beating Spain’s Feliciano Lopez in straight sets.

The players spent a little over an hour on the court before world No. 2 sealed a 6-3, 6-3 win.

The Serbian next faces either compatriot Janko Tipsarevic, seeded six, or German veteran Tommy Haas.

Meanwhile, fourth seed Tomas Berdych had to dig deep to defeat world No. 22 Sam Querrey of the United States

The Czech secured a tough 6-2, (3)6-7, 6-4 victory to book a quarterfinal encounter with fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Tsonga had hit 11 aces to eliminate Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 6-2, 7-6(2).

"I feel like I am playing a really good level." Tsonga said after the match. “It's only now I started to play well, so I hope I will continue to play like this. After all, of course for me London is a goal."

London will host the ATP World Tour Finals from 5th to 12th of November.

Tsonga is in a tussle with Tipsarevic for the eighth and final spot at the season finale.
