Feliciano fails to honor Nadal as a lucky loser

The Toledo, who replaced Nadal in the final draw after his loss due to injury, could do little against Lloyd Harris. Isner and Rublev victories.


Feliciano López could not honor the figure of Rafa Nadal after occupying his position as lucky loser in the final draw of the Masters 1,000 in Canada due to the loss caused by the Balearic. The man from Toledo fell to South African Lloyd Harris, Nadal's own executioner a week ago in the ATP 500 in Washington, and finally said goodbye to Toronto after being re-caught (he was eliminated in the previous phase) for the Manacorense's left foot injury : 6-2 and 6-3 in 65 minutes of play.

Harris was in charge from the beginning that the match against 'Feli' had little history. In the duel of servers that the meeting raised, the South African tipped the balance in his favor with numbers that were impossible to counter: 84% of points won with first serve, 11 aces and full effectiveness in breaking balls saved (3/3). Thus, in the absence of Nadal and subsequent elimination of Feliciano, only Roberto Bautista remains as the only Spanish representative (Davidovich also lost in the first round). The Castellón will look for his pass to the next round this Wednesday against Tommy Paul.

Rublev survives in a day of surprises

Andrey Rublev, fourth seed in Toronto, signed a great victory against Fabio Fognini by a score of 7-6 (4) and 6-3. In the round of 16 he will face John Isner, who gave account of a Christian Garín (4-6, 6-3 and 6-4) who is still struggling to shine on surfaces other than clay. They were one of the few favorites who lived up to expectations on a day that was full of surprises. The most representative carried the stamp of the Australian James Duckworth (85th), who left out a Jannik Sinner (6-3 and 6-4) who had just lifted the title last week in Washington. Auger-Aliassime (at the hands of Lajovic) and De Miñaur (eliminated by Basilashvili) also said goodbye. Hurkacz advanced on Nishikori's resignation.

Results of the day at the 1,000 Masters in Canada.
