Le Canadien Milos Raonic au 1tour du Masters 1000 de Toronto, le 6 août.

Goffin a été battu en deux manches sur le score de 6-3, 6-4 après une heure 13 de jeu.

"De manière générale, c'était une bonne performance", a estimé le Canadien. "Je ne savais pas comment les choses allaient se passer aujourd'hui", a ajouté le Canadien, blessé en juillet à Wimbledon, où il avait atteint les quarts-de-finale.

Issu des qualifications, Daniil Medvedev a réussi la performance de la journée en sortant Jack Sock, 19e mondial et tête de série numéro 13, en trois sets (6-3, 3-6, 6-3).

Pierre-Hugues Herbert a parfaitement géré son premiert tour. Le Serbe a éliminé le Bosnien Mirza Basic en deux manches de 6-3 et 7-6. Il a par ailleurs résisté aux trois occasions de briser de son adversaire.

L'interruption de la rencontre par la pluie n'a pas perturbé Herbert, qui a conclu le deuxième set sur son engagement avant de prendre un avantage décisif à 2-1 dans le troisième set et de l'emporter en 2h 24 min. L'Alsacien de 27 ans affrontera au prochain tour John Isner, l'un des hommes en forme du moment, récent vainqueur du tournoi d'Atlanta et demi-finaliste à Wimbledon.

Et l'Américain Sam Querrey a battu le Français Adrian Mannarino 6-2 et 7-5. "Cette victoire me fait du bien et me relance un peu", a réagi le Français, qui a écopé la semaine dernière d'une amende de 16.500 dollars (14.130 euros) pour s'être emporté à plusieurs reprises lors de son match perdu contre Marcos Baghdatis au 1er tour du tournoi de Washington.

Parmi les grands noms à avoir réussi leur entrée à Toronto, on compte Novak Djokovic.

Le Suisse Stan Wawrinka a comblé un retard pour vaincre l'Australien Nick Kyrgios 1-6, 7-5, 7-5.
