Tennis young gun Alexander Zverev has scared the absolute daylight out of a young ball boy at the Shanghai Open.

In addition, the German had the advantage in the shortest, mid-range and the longest rallies to earn his win fair and square and advance into the 10th Masters 1000 quarter-final.

De Minaur, 19, defeated France's Benoit Paire 6-4, 6-3 to enhance his growing reputation.

Kyle Edmund continued his strong campaign on the hard courts with a straight-sets win over Nicolas Jarry to reach the Shanghai Masters quarter-finals.

"I played alright", Zverev assessed.

After the world No 5 won a crucial point in his match with Nicoloz Basilashvili at the Shanghai Open, he showed his delight with a fist pump.


"He's playing too much golf", said Zverev.

Meanwhile, Zverev said on Wednesday that he will not play in the new-format Davis Cup finals in November 2019 because he needs the time off, calling the scheduling "crazy".

The 21-year-old German, regarded as one of the finest prospects in tennis, said that he expects other high-ranking players to follow suit.
