Portuguese tennis player Gonçalo Oliveira, 16th seed, qualified today for the eighth final of the Shanghai tournament, beating Frenchman Tak-Khunn Wang in the second round of the Chinese challenger circuit.

Gonçalo Oliveira, 254th in the world ranking, imposed himself in three sets on a tennis player positioned almost 100 places lower in the ATP hierarchy, where he occupies the 345th place, by the 6-7 (3-7) ), 6-3 and 6-4, after a 2:40 hour ‘marathon’ showdown.

The Portuguese tennis player, who made his debut in the Chinese hard-floor tournament today as he was exempt from the opening round, will face Indian Prajnesh Gunneswaran, the world’s first pre-designated number 85 player in the eighth finals.
