Four-time champion Novak Djokovic advanced to the third round of the Rogers Cup on Wednesday, beating Canadian wild-card Peter Polansky 6-3, 6-4. It was a very emotional win.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it", Djokovic said. But I have to accept it, deal with it, and move on. "I thought I found pretty good accuracy and angles with the first serve, and also my second serve worked pretty well".

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. An easy forehand. I missed it, but that's sport. "I executed my plan, I knew at some point that he was going to break".

Djokovic said he was having no problems with the shot clock despite being a player who regularly picks up violations for the length of time he takes between points.

Top-ranked Rafael Nadal beat Swizterland's Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 7-6 (4) in a night match delayed by rain late in the first set.

19 year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas pulls off the biggest win of his career with a 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 victory over Novak Djokovic at the Rogers Cup. "But I just played not that great, especially from the baseline". "I get into a rhythm of playing matches one after another, and right now, I'm in that rhythm". Dimitrov, who last reached a quarter-final in April, added: "Clearly I'm not playing my best tennis, but I'm finding a way and managing to go through those matches".

Earlier, fifth-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov outlasted American Frances Tiafoe 7-6 (1), 3-6, 7-6 (4) and fourth-seeded South African Kevin Anderson topped qualifier Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 7-5, 6-3.
