MOSCOW, October 12 (RIA Novosti)
Novak Djokovic completed a straight-sets win over German veteran Tommy Haas in their quarterfinal encounter at the Shanghai Masters on Friday.
The Serbian star won 6-3, 6-3, wobbling only at the start of the second set when Haas, ranked 21 in the world, managed to take a 2-0 lead.
In the semifinal, the world No. 2 will face fourth seed Tomas Berdych, who earlier defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France.
Britain’s Andy Murray booked his place in the semifinals eliminating Radek Stepanek and now awaits the winner of the clash between world No. 1 Roger Federer and Croatia’s Marin Cilic.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
