Peter Polansky was ousted from the tournament on Wednesday, falling 6-4, 7-6 to Romanian Victor Hanescu at Rexall Centre in Toronto. The 22-year-old from nearby Thornhill, Ont., was the last Canadian standing in the main draw of the $2.43 million (U.S.) event at York University.
It has been more than 50 years since a Canadian won the title. Robert Bedard won the championship in 1958, which was his second straight win at the event.
Polansky was one of four Canadian players granted a wildcard entry. He had opened with an upset win over Austrian Jurgen Melzer, becoming the first Canadian in seven years to beat a player ranked in the top 15 at his home tournament.
