Rogers Cup results LIVE

Rafael Nadal (ESP) returns a ball to Benoit Paire (not pictured) in the Rogers Cup tennis tournament at Aviva Centre.

World number one Nadal kicked off his campaign with an emphatic 6-2 6-3 win over Benoit Paire, breaking six times over the one hour 14 minute match.

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.

"I actually feel like there is more time now than before because the shot clock starts counting down once the chair umpire calls the score", Djokovic said.

Djokovic, 31, took 84 minutes on Wednesday to advance with seven aces and two breaks of serve while never facing a break point against Toronto-based wild card Polansky, the world number 121.

"I thought I found pretty good accuracy and angles with the first serve, and also my second serve worked pretty well".

Nadal will face Stan Wawrinka in the round of 16 after the Swiss rallied to beat Hungarian Marton Fucsovics 1-6 7-6 (2) 7-6 (10). "In the moments when I probably needed to step it up, I did".
