Rogers Cup Toronto Masters photo diary, Day 3


Originally published on: 26/02/10 14:17

Every day this week Tennishead will bring you high quality action photographs of the best players in the world at the Rogers Cup Toronto Masters.

Despite the six hours of rain which fell on Toronto on Wednesday, day three of the Rogers Cup turned into a classic.

We had the entrance of newly-crowned Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal, all glistening muscles and recently topped-up Spanish suntan (and for those of you interested in his tennis, he brushed aside American qualifier Jesse Levine).

Then we had the shock exit of top seed and world No.1 Roger Federer, as he crashed in three sets to in-form Frenchman Gilles Simon, or as an ex-colleague of mine once referred to him, Simon Giles (delivered in an English accent).

As well as Rog and Rafa there was Nikolay Davydenko, David Ferrer, James Blake, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Russian madman Marat Safin and the highly talented but highly unpredictable Richard Gasquet all strutting their stuff in the Canadian sunshine.

Now get stuck in and then after youve checked that out read our snappers blog from Toronto.

And thats an order!
