09:31 PM ET 10.04 | Rafael Nadal managed to get closer to reaching the number one spot in the world again with a win in the quarterfinals of the China Open. He was able to beat Fabio Fognini of Italy in three sets, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1. In order to actually have a chance of claiming the top spot, he will have to reach the finals whee it seems that he could be meeting Novak Djokovic, the current number 1 seed. Djokovic beat American Sam Querry in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2, in just under an hour of play, which is incredible. But then again, that is to be expected of someone like Djokovic.
