(Reuters) - Top seed and defending champion Roger Federer battled past in-form Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-4 4-6 6-4 to reach the last-16 at the Shanghai Masters on Wednesday.

Federer, playing his first Tour-level match since suffering a shock fourth-round defeat by John Millman at the U.S. Open last month, broke Medvedev twice to take the opening set.
