Doubles pair of World No 1 Rafael Nadal and World No 2 Novak Djokovic, who were making their partnership debut, got defeated by Canadian wild cards Vasek Pospisil and Milos Raonic 5-7, 6-3, 10-8 in the opening round of Rogers Cup on Monday.

Canadian pair won the last three games of the second set, continued with momentum to take 4-0 lead in the match tie breaker and clinched the victory in their favour.

Debut of Nadal and Djokovic marked the first time in more than 30 years that the top two players were teaming up in doubles action.


My (poor) pics from before the match:

I had a great time over the first weekend and into the first Monday at the Rogers Cup. I made the rounds of all the courts and caught up on all the players I knew and a few (like these two youngsters) who I didn't. Unfortunately I had only purchased day tickets, so I did not see this match. And, as I didn't tape it, I didn't see them win! Maybe I can find the match somewhere? I shall check it out.
