Rogers Cup Update: Another Major Upset As Nadal Loses

Rafael Nadal, the overall #2 player in the world was upset today against Ivan Dodig, 1-6, 7-6, 7-6.

That leaves just two of the top four players in the world in this tournament: Djokovic and Federer.

Novak Djokovic, playing in his first tournament as the top-ranked player in the world, survived a close first set to pull out a 7-5, 6-1 match against Nikolai Davydenko.

Roger Federer defeated Vasek Pospisil (Canadian) 7-5, 6-3.

With both the #2 and #4 seed gone, the path would seemingly be clear for someone on that side of the draw to unexpectedly make the finals. My favorites would be Mardy Fish or Tomas Berdych.

Third round action starts on Thursday.
