This should be a great match. Djokovic continued his impressive Asian swing winning streak on Saturday as he worked his way past Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a 6-2 7-5 victory in the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters. The Serb needed just over an hour and a half to beat the Frenchman, who admitted after the match that he hadn't served well enough to win the match.

"It's important for me to get into another final," said Djokovic.

"[My serving] was very controlled, very efficient... I was trying to open up the court and move him around. I know he likes to have targets, he likes to play from the backhand corners so I tried not to [let] him into that comfort zone."

Djokovic can now look forward to a meeting with Del Potro in the final, rather than a rematch with World No. 1 Rafael Nadal. Del Potro produced a stunning display in the final four as he battered his way through Nadal's defence for a 6-2 6-4 triumph. The Argentine played with plenty of depth and had Nadal pinned well behind the baseline for most of the match.

"I played so solid all the time, hitting the ball so hard," said Del Potro.

"I saw Rafa playing very far off the baseline, which is good for my game, for my serve, and confidence. That's the way to beat this guy.

"Always when you beat the No. 1 player of the world, you feel something special in your mind, feelings. It's one moment so good to explain with words. I'm so happy, so excited to enjoy a little bit of this match."

The scene is now set for another battle between Djokovic and Del Potro. Djokovic has won two of their three meetings this season, with the latest of which being a thrilling 7-5 4-6 7-6 6-7 6-3 triumph in the Wimbledon semi-finals.

Del Potro certainly has the firepower to trouble the defending champion though, so this could be a close and entertaining final.
