Novak Djokovic knocked out of Rogers Cup by Greek teenager Stefanos Tsitsipas

Rafael Nadal reveals what he eats before and after a tennis match

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.

For the resident of Athens, who arrived in Toronto fresh off a run to the semi-finals in Washington where he lost to German world No 3 Alexander Zverev, the win is the latest in a breakthrough campaign during which he has reached the quarter-finals or better at seven ATP main tour events. "With each game, with each point that I play, I feel more confident, more stable on the court, and everything falls into its place". "I'm putting Greece more deep into the map of tennis", Tsitsipas said. It was a very emotional win.

"Losing in this kind of tournament, it's not something I don't care about", Djokovic said.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it", the Serbian star said. But I have to accept it, deal with it, and move on.

However, Tsitsipas did well to break Djokovic for a 2-0 lead in the third set and never looked back. An easy forehand. I missed it, but that's sport.

Tsitsipas set up match point with a scorching crosscourt victor before completing the victory in two hours 17 minutes. "I executed my plan, I knew at some point that he was going to break".

Rafael Nadal was made to wait before his second-round Rogers Cup match due to several rain delays but did his part to put the schedule back on track with a speedy 6-2 6-3 win over Frenchman Benoit Paire on Wednesday.

"Of course I was not at 100 percent today", Nadal, 32, told reporters.

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. "Just happy to be in the quarterfinals".

Sixth seed Marin Cilic continued his quiet progress, beating Argentine 11th seed Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-2. "I just played not that great". "I get into a rhythm of playing matches one after another, and right now, I'm in that rhythm".

Grigor Dimitrov had a tougher time in his round-of-16 match against American Frances Tiafoe.

He next faces Wimbledon runner-up and fourth seed Kevin Anderson who defeated Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 7-5, 6-3 to also make the last-eight.

In the other quarterfinal, Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation will play Robin Haase of the Netherlands.
