Isner faces 3rd seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals, who stunned defending China Open singles champion Nikoloz Basilashvili 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in a three-set marathon.

The last men's match of the day saw No. 2 seed Alexander Zverev issue a real statement of intent, dispatching Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada 6-3, 6-1 in impressively quick fashion.
