Karen Khachanov defeated Cameron Norrie in the first round of Canadian Masters, winning in a grueling three set battle. In the second round, he sailed past fellow Russian, Aslan Karatsev in straight sets to book a place in the last 16. He has had a good run of form off late, as he claimed the silver medal at Tokyo Olympics, and also reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon last month.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is not enjoying a great run of form, after his incredible run at French Open, where he reached the finals. The Greek lost in the first round at Wimbledon, and was defeated in the third round of Tokyo Olympics. The world number three defeated Ugo Humbert in the second round of Canadian Masters in three sets.
