Djokovic and Federer breeze thru to the 3rd. round.

Roger Federer will get the chance to take revenge over his Wimbledon conqueror Jo-Wilfried Tsonga after the pair advanced to a meeting in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Tsonga came from two sets down to stun Federer at the All England Club and also recovered a big deficit to beat the Swiss star the last time they met in Montreal two years ago. Federer defeated Canadian wild card Vasek Pospisil 7-5 6-3 in 77 minutes today while Tsonga took the same time to beat another Wimbledon star, Australian Bernard Tomic, 6-3 7-6 (7/1). Federer told atptour.com: “I will not think about that Wimbledon match as much as I might think about the match we had here two years ago. Both matches were, so to speak, not normal matches.”

Top seed Novak Djokovic moved through to the third round with a 7-5 6-1 win over Nikolay Davydenko although the score did not reflect serving problems which saw the world number one broken four times. Fifth seed Gael Monfils beat American qualifier Alex Bogomolov Jr 6-2 7-6 (7/5) while there were also wins for seventh seed Tomas Berdych, eighth seed Nicolas Almagro, plus Richard Gasquet, Stanislas Wawrinka and Ivo Karlovic.
