Djokovic happy to beat Polansky and the clock in Toronto

Rafael Nadal 'I could have won Wimbledon but Novak Djokovic deserved it'

Top seed Rafael Nadal blew past patchy Frenchman Benoit Paire 6-2, 6-3 on Wednesday to begin his quest for a fourth Rogers Cup trophy at the Toronto Masters.

Buoyed by an enthusiastic crowd on the smaller venue, Shapovalov advanced to the third round of the Rogers Cup by defeating the 14th-seeded Italian 6-3, 7-5 in a match that was delayed for hours and interrupted in the first set by heavy rains.

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. "So I am very pleased".

"Wimbledon is definitely the most well-known tennis tournament in the world and the one that I always dreamt of winning so it was a true blast". Overall, my game was so-and-so. "I just tried to stay focused".

The pair are open the day's play on Centre Court, the first of five matches.

Stan Wawrinka, three times a Major champion but ranked 195 as he continues to work back from double knee surgery, had won just six matches this year, but he gutsed out a tough opening win, 1-6, 7-5, 7-5, over Kyrgios.

Panic as Brazil legend Ronaldo gets hospitalised, taken to ICU
Brazil icon Ronaldo has offered an update on his personal wellbeing following reports he was hospitalised with flu on Friday. The former footballer, Ronaldo Nazário de Lima, was admitted into the Hospital de Can Misses in Ibiza last Friday.

Karen Khachanov upset 12th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta 6-4 7-6 (7-3), Ilya Ivashka toppled 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.

Earlier Wednesday, tournament officials announced Argentine star Juan Martin del Potro had withdrawn from the tournament with a left wrist injury hours before his scheduled match against Haase.

"The main goal 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.

Del Potro, who had a bye in the first round after reaching the Los Cabos final last week, was set to play Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

In Montreal, Alize Cornet of France beat listless-looking Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-1 on in the second round of the Rogers Cup.

The inclement weather also forced Shapovalov to wait, but the Canadian had no issues dispatching Chardy 6-1 6-4.

Blue Light From Phones And Electronics Can Cause Blindness, A Study Finds
But as we age, or if the immune system is suppressed, we lose the ability to fight against attacks by retinal and blue light. It turns out that introducing the retinal to blue light leads the molecule to have a "poisonous" reaction, the study found.

His trademark retrieving skills were on display throughout the match, but Tsitsipas used strong groundstrokes to push the pace and force Djokovic to fully stretch on several rallies.

"I'm happy to see Stan playing well again". Every tournament starts from zero. So now I'm going to use it in my favor for my next match against him and try to get the most out of it.

Top-seeded Simona Halep of Romania trailed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russian Federation 4-3 when rain forced the suspension of play for the day. Both also, it so happens, set showy matches with, respectively, the in-form No14 seed Fabio Fognini and No7 seed Dominic Thiem.

Third-seeded American Sloane Stephens, meanwhile, progressed through to the third round with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Canada's Françoise Abanda.

It was only the second time the two veteran players had met and the first in nine years. "There were frustrations at times but that means I care".
