'It was a good match, a very positive victory for me over a tough opponent, ' Nadal said.

"Losing in this kind of tournament, it's not something I don't care about", Djokovic said. "It wasn't that great of a match".

Del Potro, who had a bye in the first round after reaching the Los Cabos final last week, was set to play Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

"Honestly I'm not sure what he said".

"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.

Tsitsipas, ranked 27, spent just over two hours in advancing to the first Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career.

Nadal was made to work harder in the second where the players exchanged breaks over six consecutive games before the world number one finally held in the ninth to seal the match when Paire sent a service return wide.
