The Spaniard eased past Fabio Fognini of Italy in the Chinese city, winning 6-3, 6-1 at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena.

Marin Čilić of Croatia progressed with a 7-6, 6-4 win over American Steve Johnson.

Dimitrov raced in to unleash a backhand victor for a break point in the fourth game of the final set, but Nadal thwarted him again and claimed the decisive break to lead 4-2 before sealing yet another win.

"I have a tough match against Grigor and know I will have to play my best. but I am playing well".

The Croat did maintain his own flawless set record on Friday after beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas, 6-3, 6-4, and he'll be looking to add another Spanish conquest to his record when he faces Nadal in Shanghai on Saturday. "We'll see tomorrow if I can have another good day".

The 25th-ranked Ramos-Vinolas ended Cilic's streak of winning 21 service games in the sixth game of the second set. "Maybe this match-up was maybe a bit easier and I took my chances more".
