Djokovic, a four-time Rogers Cup champion, faded in the decisive set against the flashy 19-year-old, who played with poise and power on a warm, breezy afternoon at Aviva Centre on the York University campus.
Djokovic, 31, took 84 minutes on Wednesday to advance with seven aces and two breaks of serve while never facing a break point against Toronto-based wild card Polansky, the world number 121.
His trademark retrieving skills were on display throughout the match, but Tsitsipas used strong groundstrokes to push the pace and force Djokovic to fully stretch on several rallies.
However, Tsitsipas did well to break Djokovic for a 2-0 lead in the third set and never looked back.More news: Twitter CEO Gives a Rare Media Interview
