Top-ranked Novak Djokovic hummed on the baseline to keep himself calm as he survived an almighty scare against 110th-ranked Mischa Zverev to reach the Shanghai Masters semifinals Friday.Qualifier Zverev's composure cracked as the 12-time Grand Slam winner reeled off the first four points of the tie-break and raced through the deciding set to win 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-3 .Chinese fans brandished Serbian flags but there was consternation when three-time champion Djokovic gave up an early break and sent down four double faults as he lost the first set.In the semifinals Saturday, Djokovic will play Spain's Roberto Bautista, who floored Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-4 to send last year's runner-up crashing out.
