Nadal routs Paire to reach third round in Toronto

Novak Djokovic sent Peter Polansky of Canada to a 6-3, 6-4 defeat on Wednesday (Aug 8) as the four-time champion powered into the third round at the Toronto Masters before insisting he's "comfortable" with the controversial "shot clock" innovation.

Stefanos Tsitsipas produced a moment of magic following a lung-busting rally during his sensational upset win against Novak Djokovic at the Rogers Cup on Thursday.

In a match which began slightly late due to heavy overnight rain which continued into the morning, ninth-seeded Wimbledon champion Djokovic repeated a victory he scored over the Canadian at the same tournament in 2009.

The Serb had seven aces and never faced a break point in the one-hour 24-minute match, which just beat the afternoon delay.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it", the Serbian star said.

He won on a third-set tie-break - his second in as many days - 7-6 (7-1) 3-6 7-6 (7-4). Overall my game was so-and-so.

After losing the first set 6-1, wild card Wawrinka took the second 7-6 (7-2) to force a third. Italy's Fabio Fognini, the No. 14 seed coming off a victory at Los Cabos, fell out with a 6-3, 7-5 (14) loss to Canada's Denis Shapovalov.

The decider ended in a 22-game tiebreak, with the former world No 3 taking the set 7-6 (12-10).

Defending Rogers Cup champion Alexander Zverev of Germany blew past Russian qualifier Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals.

Anderson topped qualifier Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 7-5, 6-3, and Dimitrov beat American Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (1), 3-6, 7-6 (4).

Eighth-seeded John Isner, the American who won at Atlanta two weeks ago, beat France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert 7-6 (3), 6-2.

Del Potro, who had a bye in the first round, was set to play Robin Haase, with the Dutchman instead facing lucky loser Mikhail Youzhny.

Earlier Wednesday, tournament officials announced that Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina had withdrawn because of a left wrist injury.
