After enjoying beautiful weather for the first few days, the Rogers Cup has been hampered by rain both yesterday and today. Both of yesterday's matches were canceled due to the washout. Novak Djokovic and Sam Querrey were slated for the afternoon matchup at Centre Court while the hometown boy, Milos Raonic, was set to duel with Olympic gold-medallist Andy Murray - both matches with quarter-final spots at stake.
Although it's raining again today, the organizers of the Rogers Cup were able to get in one match. France's Richard Gasquet defeated Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in straight sets (6-4, 6-2) to move onto the quarter-finals where he will await the winner of the match between Juan Monaco and Mardy Fish.
Although Gasquet won today, he was not the first player to qualify for the quarters. Milos Raonic received a bye into the quarters yesterday after his opponent Andy Murray withdrew from the tournament yesterday with a knee injury.
Gasquet remains the lone winner today. The aforementioned match between Novak Djokovic and Sam Querrey began following Gasquet's victory but was suspended when the skies opened up again.
The weather calls for thunderstorms tonight but we'll see what happens as tournament organizers look to take advantage of any possible window of clear weather.
