Florian Mayer scored the biggest win of his career on Thursday, when he sensationally ousted World No. 2 Rafael Nadal 7-6(5), 6-3 to reach the Shanghai Rolex Masters quarter-finals. German No. 15 seed needed one hour and 48 minutes to send the Spanish superstar packing.

Nadal withstood pressure from Mayer, saving two set points at 4-5 and even led 4-2 in the tie-break, yet Mayer remained more than consistent on his serve to clinch the 64-minute first set,dropping only 7 points on serve.
