Nadal routs Paire to reach third round in Toronto

"I'll take it as a good experience and look forward to the next event".

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.

This time past year, Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas had yet to record a victory on the ATP World Tour.

It was not all smooth sailing for the 17-time grand slam champion, who took time out after his epic Wimbledon semi-final with Novak Djokovic, with Paire firing four aces past the Spaniard and broke his opponent's serve three times in the second set. "With each game, with each point that I play, I feel more confident, more stable on the court, and everything falls into its place".

Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching crosscourt victor before completing the victory in their first career meeting in two hours, 17 minutes.

"Sorry to my fans in Toronto, but I have to pull out of the tournament since my left wrist needs some days of rest", Del Potro said in a tweet.

He held serve to open the set and wrong-footed Djokovic after the veteran served at deuce, setting up an overhead smash for the advantage before a brilliant backhand victor secured a 2-0 lead. "And to come out and just play, I mean, that's all I wanted", said ATP World Tour Finals champion Dimitrov.

But there's actually another golfer named Tommy Fleetwood, this one a caddy in Florida who once tried to make the Senior Tour. It would take me over five years to earn that, and that's if I was the best at my job, never mind joint 12th- rubbish Tommy.

World number one Nadal, who kicked off the evening session a little over an hour after its original start time, had some issues with his serve later in the match but still needed only 74 minutes to secure his spot in the third round.

Tsitsipas now faces defending champion Alexander Zverev in the final eight after the German routed Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.

Cilic beat 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman of Argentina 6-3, 6-2.

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. "I just played not that great".

Fourth-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa and fifth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria set up another quarterfinal.

Also, Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation beat 12th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 6-4, 7-6 (3), and Ilya Ivashka of Belarus topped American Ryan Harrison 7-6 (5), 6-4.
