Turns out the switch actually benefited him in the end.

"I think I played a solid match. I'll take it as a good experience and look forward to the next event". It really frustrates me.

Djokovic, coming off his fourth Wimbledon title last month, had seven aces and never faced a break point in the 1-hour, 25-minute match that just beat the rain.

The 19-year-old Greek player prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 over the former world number one in a little over two-and-a-quarter hours to book his spot in the quarter-finals in Montreal.

"I was serving well so that break was everything", Tsitsipas said.

"It was one of those matches where everything was kind of feeling good for me. I have a long-term vision, and this is just another great step in my career".

At No. 26, Shapovalov is the highest ranked Canadian in the men's draw.

Leading seeds who enjoyed first-round byes swing into action later Wednesday with number one Rafael Nadal starting against Frenchman Benoit Paire with second seed and defending champion Alexander Zverev facing American qualifier Bradley Klahn.

He will face Robin Haase of the Netherlands in the third round on Thursday.

Rafael Nadal will then face Marin Cilic for the eighth time in career, the Spaniard leads head to head 5-2 but Cilic won the most recent match at this year's Australian Open as Nadal retired in the fifth set.

He wrapped up the day's opening match minutes before the first of several rain delays.

"Got moved to grand stand #welldone #homeevent", Shapovalov wrote, adding the clapping hands emoji.

The 33-year-old Wawrinka broke late in the second set to level the match, and completed his fightback on a second match point as he also broke in the 12th game of the decider.

Stan Wawrinka and Kevin Anderson survived but Dominic Thiem crashed out, along with Milos Raonic and Fabio Fognini.

But the Canadian wilted after that, losing serve twice in the third set to knock him out of the tournament. Be more clever, I would say, and play the right way and use my chances'.

"I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it", Djokovic said.

"And (Tiafoe) stepped up".

Novak Djokovic sent Peter Polansky of Canada to a 6-3, 6-4 defeat on Wednesday 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.

"That restored Djokovic to the top 10 of the rankings and he will target another surge up the standings throughout the hard-court season - with the main prize the US Open".

Play continues through Sunday.

Nestor is retiring following the Davis Cup in September.

Earlier Wednesday, tournament officials announced that Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina had withdrawn from the Rogers Cup with a left wrist injury.

Teenaged prodigy Shapovalov eliminated Italian 14th seed Fabio Fognini victor last weekend in Los Cabos, 6-3, 7-5.
