Djokovic, the victor of 30 career Masters titles. will next face either seventh seed Dominic Thiem, who has yet to step on to a hard court this summer with the US Open just over a fortnight away, or rising Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas.

"I thought Tsitsipas played very well and he deserved to win without a doubt", Djokovic said. "So just all in all, it wasn't that great of a match".

Djokovic has been stunned by the teenager Tsitsipas in Toronto.

"But the crowd on the grand stand, I think they helped me a lot because it was so ecstatic, it was so energetic because it's so compact and it actually bothered Fognini quite a bit, especially toward the end".

In the other quarterfinal, Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation will play Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

In the third set, the teenager showed great composure to break for a 2-0 lead and then saved a break point for a 3-0 margin.

Top-ranked Rafael Nadal beat Swizterland's Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 7-6 (4) in a night match delayed by rain late in the first set.

"I was serving well so that break was everything", Tsitsipas said.

World number one Nadal kicked off his campaign with an emphatic 6-2 6-3 win over Benoit Paire, breaking six times over the one hour 14 minute match.

The world number 27 is through to the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career.

"The main objective of the tweet was because I was disappointed, obviously not for myself, but because there was so many fans and friends that wanted to come watch me on centre court and they weren't able to", Shapovalov said.
