Wawrinka Survives Difficult Kyrgios In Toronto

2018 Rogers Cup Prize Money How much can Rafael Nadal,Novak Djokovic earn

Nadal booked his place in the quarter-finals by edging past three-time Grand Slam victor Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 7-6 (4) in the early hours of this morning.

"Stan, for him to get through matches like this, healthy, no pain, that's a good sign for him", Kyrgios said.

And 17-year-old Felix Auger-Allissiame made a strong statement in a comfortable 6-4, 6-3 win over Lucas Pouille.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Wawrinka put 16th seed Kyrgios out with an impressive display after losing a one-sided opening set.

"The main objective of the tweet was because I was disappointed, obviously not for myself, but because there was so many fans and friends that wanted to come watch me on centre court and they weren't able to", Shapovalov said. It's important that I have another match tomorrow too.

Medvedev won 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (9).

"Of course the good results would be good for the confidence but the conditions are completely different - courts, the ball especially".

"I'm happy with the way I'm practicing".

Wawrinka's victory in just over two hours avenged a 2015 loss to Kyrgios in Canada, when the Swiss had to retire.

Kyrgios was at the centre of controversy in Canada three years ago when he alleged that fellow Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis had slept with Wawrinka's girlfriend, Donna Vekic.

Growth doubles to 0.4pc as economy bounces back from cold snap
The ONS also said that the economy grew by 0.1 per cent in June, down from a more robust 0.3 per cent in the previous month.

Wawrinka battled back, converting on 86 per cent of his first service points to take the second set. Obviously, it takes a little bit of time to get used to the new surface.

"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.

The Spaniard had only the best things to say about Wawrinka, who's ranked No. 195 as he picks up speed in his comeback from knee surgery.

He converted a break in the second set and held serve the rest of the way.

It was probably what Djokovic needed. They played their first three career matches as teenagers, including a fiery affair on the outer courts at the 2004 Indian Wells tournament.

The Serbian star, who last won the Rogers Cup in 2016 and is coming off a win at Wimbledon this year, will next face wild-card Peter Polansky of Canada.

Japan's Kei Nishikori lost serve five times in a 7-5, 6-1 loss to Robin Haase of the Netherlands. Both matches had to be completed after a brief rain delay halted evening play for the second day in a row.

Eighth-seeded John Isner beat France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 but Italy's 14th seed Fabio Fognini, coming off a victory at Los Cabos, suffered a 6-3 7-5 (16-14) defeat to Canadian young gun Denis Shapovalov.

Also, Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation beat 12th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 6-4, 7-6 (7-3); Ilya Ivashka of Belarus topped American Ryan Harrison 7-6 (7-5), 6-4; and American Frances Tiafoe edged Canada's Milos Raonic 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-1.
