Defending champ Nadal beats Pella to enter Rogers Cup quarters

A mishit forehand from Pella handed Nadal the only break of the opening set in the second game and it was all the Spaniard needed. Later in the second set, Rafael Nadal won the first eight points of the set as it was love hold and love break at 2-0.

"The last three, four years I didn't play worse than this year, but I just came with low confidence and I came little bit sad to Canada because I didn't play good in my own home tournament", said Thiem.

Nadal is the overwhelming favourite to win this match at 7/50, whilst Fognini is priced at 19/4.

Thiem fired 11 aces and saved all nine break points against Cilic, while breaking the Croatian once in four opportunities.

Rafael Nadal surpassed Roger Federer for most ATP Masters 1000 wins with a comfortable victory over Guido Pella in the Rogers Cup third round on Thursday.

Based on that, and his fourth round appearance at Roland Garros, Fognini entered the world's top ten for the first time, but his form has slumped since Wimbledon where he was fined for his comment that the whole venue should be blown up.

Fognini beat Nadal in their last meeting in the Monte Carlo Masters semifinals.

Nadal turned into harm-unfastened through the clay and grass court season but with the pass back to hard courts for the rest of the year, there are worries he may want to struggle again. Ten of the matches overall were decided in straight sets. A lot of the matches between these two have taken place on clay and Fognini has still had some success. Fognini also has a history of choking a bit as the competition gets steeper. At the USA Open last September, Nadal become pressured to retire from his semi-very last with Juan Martin del Potro due to knee damage.
