“Tipsarevic will be a tough opponent,” said Raonic. “I’ve got to keep doing what I’ve been doing, clean up my service games a bit and get better at closing it out.”

Raonic, who dropped Sunday’s Rogers Cup final in Montreal to Rafael Nadal, defeated Jack Sock 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

“Mentally I felt good, it was a bit about getting used to the conditions and the environment,” Raonic said of his slow start against the American. “I stuck through it and in the second set I stayed positive and started to play a bit more aggressive.”

Fellow Canadian Vasek Pospisil also advanced when France’s Gilles Simon retired with an injury.

Simon was trailing 6-3, 1-1 when he ended the match.
