SHANGHAI, China -- Rafael Nadal lost his first match since reclaiming the No. 1 ranking this week, falling to a resurgent Juan Martin del Potro 6-2, 6-4 in the Shanghai Masters semifinals on Saturday. The fifth-ranked del Potro will try to win his first Masters title on Sunday against top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the other semifinal 6-2, 7-5. Del Potro hadnt beaten Nadal since the semifinals of the 2009 U.S. Open where the Argentine went on to win his only Grand Slam title. But del Potro is playing fully fit and with confidence -- hes coming off a win last week at the Japan Open that returned him to the top five in the rankings for the first time in three years. He completely overpowered Nadal with his deep, punishing groundstrokes and fended off all six break points he faced. Nadals serve, on the other hand, was under threat for the entire match. After not dropping serve in 28 games this week, the Spaniard was broken twice to start the match as del Potro raced out to 4-0. Del Potro started to make a few mistakes in the second set, giving Nadal two chances to break in the second game. But the Argentine saved both with huge serves and put the pressure right back on Nadal, breaking him for a third time in the following game. "I played so solid all the time, hitting so hard the ball. I saw Rafa playing very far off the baseline, which is good for my game, for my serve and confidence. Thats the way to beat this guy," del Potro said. Nadal said he hadnt seen del Potro play this well in years. Or anyone, for that matter. "Very few times I played against a player with a level like today I played against," the Spaniard said. "At the end, I played against a player who served 80 per cent of first serves, who hit every ball as hard as he can, I think, and with no mistakes." The big-hitting Argentine, who wrapped up a spot in the ATP Finals in London with the win, has been working his way back into top form since a wrist injury knocked him off the tour for most of 2010 -- just after he got his breakthrough win as a 20-year-old at the U.S. Open. Now he believes he can challenge Djokovic, Nadal and Andy Murray for major titles again, as his run to the semifinals of Wimbledon this year showed. He lost a tight, five-setter to Djokovic in that match, but he had beaten the Serb a few months earlier at Indian Wells. "I always believe (in) myself. I always believe (in) my game," he said. "It could be my biggest challenge of my career, getting closer to the top position." Djokovic, meanwhile, will be trying to win his 20th straight match -- and fourth straight tournament -- in China on Sunday. He won the China Open and the Shanghai Masters in 2012, and then successfully defended his title in Beijing last week, beating Nadal in the final. "Ive always been coming out in China and making some really, really good results, winning trophies," Djokovic said. "Its very positive because most of the people would think after the fourth Grand Slam of the year is over, that somehow the season is finished in the minds of maybe people who are not following consistently the tennis season." Djokovic raced to 3-0 after only seven minutes against Tsonga, who came out looking flat and misfiring wildly at times on his groundstrokes and volleys. However, Djokovic then lost his temper in the second set when serving at 4-2, yelling angrily at chair umpire Ali Nili after two disputed calls. Tsonga twice challenged late calls that went against him - and both times the Hawk-Eye camera replay showed the balls had clipped the line. The umpire awarded both points to Tsonga, prompting a furious reaction from Djokovic who thought the points should have been replayed. "Twice I was on the ball, twice you take the point away from me," Djokovic yelled. "Focus!" Tsonga managed to break the rattled Serb to get back on serve at 4-3, but his comeback was short-lived as another error-strewn game allowed Djokovic to break him at 6-5 to close out the match. "When youre on the tennis court, it feels like an arena," Djokovic said about his outburst. "Youre fighting. Its emotional. Its intense. Its normal. Its not the first nor the last time."

The young man, never lacking confidence, thought he could be really good.The Toronto Blue Jays can wrap up their third Fenway Park series sweep since the beginning of 2012 this afternoon, when they visit the Boston Red Sox to close a three-game set. The Blue Jays made it two in a row in this series on Wednesday, when Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs for the second game in a row in a 6-4 triumph. Encarnacion isnt just feasting on Red Sox pitching. The first baseman homered twice for the fourth time in 13 games and has 11 homers in his last 15 games, including five in the last three. Hes also driven in 14 runs in his last 13 games against Boston, with 10 extra-base hits. "Hes a dangerous hitter with tremendous power," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "You make mistakes, he makes you pay." Jose Reyes, Adam Lind and Dioner Navarro also had two hits apiece for the Blue Jays, whove won seven of their last nine. Xander Bogaerts and A.J. Pierzynski each had three hits and Shane Victorino belted a solo homer for the Red Sox, whove lost six straight for the first time since ending 2012 with eight consecutive setbacks. The Red Sox have scored 14 runs on the six-game skid and havent had a winless homestand of at least six games since 1994.dddddddddddd Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison (3-3) allowed just one run on six hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings, striking out four. Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz (2-4) gave up five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and two walks in just 4 2/3 innings. He is 0-2 in last three starts. On the mound for Toronto this afternoon is veteran lefty Mark Buehrle, who can take the major-league lead with an eighth victory alongside Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke, whos also scheduled to start Thursday with a chance at win No. 8. Buehrle didnt win his eighth game last season until Aug. 10. Hes 4-0 with a tiny 1.25 earned run average in five road starts in 2014. His lone loss of the season came against Boston on April 25, however, after he was nicked for six earned runs and 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings. Starting for Boston in the finale is Jon Lester, who allowed a run on four hits in five innings of a tough-luck 1-0 loss to Detroit on Friday. He threw 94 pitches and was pulled shortly after a 47-minute rain delay. He dropped a 7-1 decision to Toronto on April 27, but was 4-0 against them last season. Boston took two of three from the Jays earlier in the year.
