Montreal: Wimbledon champion Andy Murray tumbled out of the Rogers Cup on Thursday, falling 6-4, 6-3 to Lavia’s Ernests Gulbis in the third round.

The second-seeded Murray, a two-time Rogers Cup champion, was playing his second match since his Wimbledon victory. The loss ended the Scot’s winning streak at 13 matches.

“I looked on this monitor that I lost to him five times, but honestly I just remember the last match we played in Cincinnati,” Gulbis said. “It was a really tough match, but it was in 2010. It was a really long time ago. I was a different person, he was a different player.”

Rafael Nadal won his third round match, beating Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz 7-6 (6), 6-4.

Nadal, the fourth-seeded Spanish star making his first tournament appearance since losing in the first round at Wimbledon, improved his ATP Tour-leading record to 45-3 including 7-0 on hardcourts.

“I had a very good victory today against a very difficult opponent,” Nadal said about the 6-foot-8 Janowicz. “I did a few things well during the match, a few things that I need to improve a little bit more. His serve is huge. His forehand and backhand can be very dangerous.

“When he plays with a little bit of regular shots, he will become a very difficult player to beat. If he is able to maintain the right level during whole match he will be a player that will be in the very top positions.”

The Rogers Cup winner in 2005 and 2008, Nadal will face Australia’s Marinko Matosevic, a 7-6 (7), 6-7 (10), 6-3 winner over France’s Benoit Paire.

Canada’s Vasek Pospisil beat fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 7-5, 2-6, 7-6 (5). Pospisil beat an opponent ranked in the top 10 in the world for the first time.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic played later Thursday.
