Novak Djokovic was in Rogers Cup doubles action last night

It was only the second time the two veteran players had met and the first in nine years.
The 32-year-old will bid for the quarter-finals in Toronto for the first time since 2015 when he plays Stan Wawrinka, who staged another fightback in three sets, beating Marton Fucsovics 1-6, 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (12/10).
Toronto fans were treated to a scintillating match of tennis as world number one Rafael Nadal advanced to the Rogers Cup quarter-finals, while Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic was a shock casualty. Tiafoe will face Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., in the second round Wednesday. He's got a world-class backhand and matches like this are going to give him confidence.
Shapovalov will play 14th-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini in the second round on Wednesday.
"But no, it doesn't really matter if people mispronounce". Back then, in his debut at the Rogers Cup, the now No26 in the world beat the No19 seed Kyrgios.
Felix Auger-Aliassime has heard his name pronounced incorrectly so many times it doesn't even faze him anymore.
"For every teenager, 18th birthday is something you are waiting for".
And thereby hangs a tale. "It's like I'm not even thinking about my birthday, So it's kind of amusing", Auger-Aliassime said. Djokovic was slated to play Hyeon Chung but the Korean withdrew from the event with a back injury.
Defending Rogers Cup champion Alexander Zverev of Germany was to play Russian qualifier Daniil Medvedev in the late afternoon match.
But that would be later-should the returning rain permit.
The owner of 69 titles and more than 800 match-wins was absent for the entire second half of previous year as he wrestled with injury in the run-up to Wimbledon.
Djokovic had a quick break before returning to the doubles court with Anderson. He almost swept the European clay-court swing, winning his 11th Monte-Carlo, Barcelona and Roland Garros titles.

But the Canadian wilted after that, losing serve twice in the third set to knock him out of the tournament. The former champion, though, sealed the win, 6-3, 7-6 (3). They had actually met once before, nearly a decade ago, in the Montreal iteration of the tournament.
Djokovic, coming off his fourth Wimbledon title, beat Canadian wild card Peter Polansky 6-3 6-4 after heavy morning rain in Toronto delayed the ATP Masters 1000 match by about an hour. "I'm really happy with the level and the way I'm moving on the practice court, and I need to find how to put it in the match". We had a good quality of tennis. Overall, my game was so-and-so. "I have a long-term vision, and this is just another great step in my career". He has beaten the former in all three of their previous hard-court meetings, but it would be a first encounter with the teenage Greek, in what could be a fascinating encounter.
Shapovalov announced himself as a potential force on the ATP Tour when he became a surprise semi-finalist in this tournament past year, and the Canadian number one got his attempt to match or better that run at the Masters 1000 event underway with relative ease against Jeremy Chardy.

Two Virginia state troopers who were monitoring the rally were later killed in the line of duty when their helicopter crashed. Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last year's rally is planning another "white civil rights" rally on Sunday.
However, the greatest buzz around a transfer was the potential deal for Leicester City and England centre back Harry Maguire . The 21-year-old has signed a five-year contract at the King Power Stadium, subject to the deal being given global clearance.
And underdogs they will be against Pep Guardiola's side. "The important thing is to be there and to be ourselves". It's not winning back to back, it's to be ourselves. 'People say we have to forget what we did last season.
