A major upset has occurred at this year¡¯s Shanghai Rolex Masters. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been eliminated during the semi-finals by world No. 19 from Spain Roberto Bautista Agut in a match that ended 6-4 6-4.

In the final set of the match which lasted 1 hour and 47 minutes, an admittedly nervous Bautista Agut failed to take three match points before Djokovic bounced back.

The Spaniard finally clinched the fourth match point, defeating Djokovic for the first time after failing to do so during their previous five meetings.

Bautista Agut has defeated Taylor Fritz, Vicktor Troicki and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga previously in Shanghai. He now has a chance to gain the biggest title of his career in Shanghai.

After the match, Djokovic admitted that he was not feeling good but said he will next play at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris, which begins on October 31. He also said he is looking forward to celebrating his son¡¯s second birthday after Shanghai.
