Novak Djokovic continued his quest for a fifth Rogers Cup crown with a 6-3 6-4 win against Peter Polansky in Toronto.

The Serb, the ninth seed, wrapped up the match against the world 121 in one hour and 25 minutes.

The 31-year-old was far from his best but had the nous to overcome fellow veteran and home hope Polansky.

"I thought I found pretty good accuracy and angles with the first serve, and also my second serve worked pretty well.

" Overall my game was so-and-so. In the moments when I probably needed to step it up, I did."

Djokovic fired down five aces and faces gave up no break opportunities on his way to the third round, where he will meet either Dominic Thiem or Stefanos Tsitsipas.
