Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal Scheduled for Wednesday in Montreal

Shane Lambert@uncoolnegatedAnalyst IIAugust 10, 2011

The top three players on the ATP Tour are all scheduled for action Wednesday from the Canadian Masters in Montreal.

Top-ranked Novak Djokovic will face Nikolay Davydenko in a match that was originally scheduled for Tuesday night. Their match was delayed, however, due to rain and they are now scheduled third on the order of play for Montreal's central court.

The court will be opened by Roger Federer as he faces Canadian youngster Vasek Pospisil. Pospisil, 21 years old, is at a career-high world ranking of No. 155 and he has never really made the scene on tour yet. He can't be feeling too optimistic about his chances on Wednesday as he prepares to face Federer, however the experience should help Pospisil, even with a loss.

Rafael Nadal plays in a later match and will face Ivan Dodig. Dodig is a big underdog, though he has a title this season and might be able to play Nadal tough as the Spaniard has been inactive in the last month.

All in all, it appears as though the top three players in the world will all be booking their spots in the third round at the 2011 Rogers Cup with Djokovic facing the most talented opponent of the three.

The entire order of play for ATP Montreal's Central Court on Wednesday:  


CENTRAL start 12:00


[3] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. [WC] Vasek Pospisil (CAN) 

Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) vs. John Isner (USA)—To Finish / 36 01

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. Nikolay Davydenko (RUS)

Ivan Dodig (CRO) vs. [2] Rafael Nadal (ESP) 

[6] Mardy Fish (USA) vs. Feliciano Lopez (ESP) or Radek Stepanek (CZE)


Two interesting matches that are not scheduled to be played on Central Court will be between Juan Martin Del Potro and Marin Cilic and Bernard Tomic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
