Top Seed, Novak Djokovic advanced to the Round of 16 in Coupe Rogers from Montreal, defeating Florian Mayer 6-2, 6-1. The Worlds number one player was sharp in his first match of the ATP 1000 tournament. Things are likely to get much tougher for the Serb who could see Rafael Nadal in the semifinals but still has Richard Gasquet and Kei Nishikori in front of him before a potential meeting with the Spaniard.
Meanwhile, in the other half of the bracket, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Juan Martin Del Potro and Tomas Berdych remain to battle. It is a good bet that one of these four will come out of the bottom half of the bracket.
But don't tell this to players such as Jerzy Janowicz, Ivan Dodig or Denis Istomin who remain in the bracket and capable of providing an upset.
This tournament has the potential for great tennis action as play progresses and certainly help prepare a number of top players for the upcoming U.S. Open.
