On Wednesday, Serbian tennis giant Novak Djokovic and world no.1 Rafael Nadal cruised into the third round of ongoing Rogers Cup.
Djokovic, who recently won his fourth Wimbledon title, defeated Peter Polansky of Canada in straight sets 6-3, 6-4, which took him just 1 hour and 25 minutes to finish the match.
On the other hand, top-seeded Nadal dominated Benoit Paire of France -2, 6-3 at night after a series of rain delays.
Djokovic, who had seven aces in the match, said, “I thought I served well in the moments when I really need it,” Djokovic said. “I thought I found pretty good accuracy and angles with the first serve, and also my second serve worked pretty well. Overall, my game was so-and-so. In the moments when I probably needed to step it up, I did.”
