THERE was no Shanghai surprise for rising Australian tennis star Alex de Minaur, who was swiftly dispatched from the third round of the masters series tournament by Alexander Zverev on Thursday.

De Minaur carried hopes of pushing the world No.5 after taking him to a fifth set tiebreak in their Davis Cup encounter earlier this year.

But the match played out more like their Washington final in August — won comfortably be Zverev — as the German scored a comfortable 6-1 6-4 win.
