Rogers Cup results LIVE Follow Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic scores in Toronto
ROGERS CUP results – Live scores as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic begin their US Open preparations.
The Rogers Cup is the start of the North American hard-court season for most players on the tour.
Roger Federer and Andy Murray have withdrawn from the competition but there is still a star-studded line-up in Canada.
Alexander Zverev is the defending champion having beaten Federer in last year’s final and the German enters the tournament in top form having won the Citi Open last week.
Nadal and Djokovic return to action for the first time since Wimbledon and they have both been handed a tricky draw.
However, the world No 1 has been handed a bye in the opening round so will instead spend the first two days studying the opposition.
“I know the first round is going to be a tough battle,” he said.
“But watching the full draw doesn’t distract me from being focused on that first round.
“I like to see the confrontations that are in the first round. There are a couple of very interesting ones in my opinion, and that’s it.
“I always take it match by match, that’s what I’ve done all my life.”
