Helloooo everyone, Anna here (@annalogue_x), ready to bring you tonight's action from Montreal. What's better than staying up late for the tennis?!

Coric actually leads the head-to-head between these two, with two wins over Nadal. The latest of these was at Cincinatti last year. However, Rafa is in great form this year and Borna hasn't been quite as good, so if he's looking for another win, tonight may prove a tougher task.

Play gets underway in around 10 minutes, so stick with me and I'll keep you up to date!

We're just waiting for players to come onto court now...

Right, here we are. Both guys are wearing very summery kits; we have yellow and red.

So, Rafa wins the coin toss and he's decided to serve. The winner goes through to play Denis Shapovalov in the next round.

Right, warm-up is over. Let's get started!

Good start for Rafa, a forehand winner lands right on the side-line for 15-0; Eeek, Borna going for a forehand winner of his own, but he nets; 30-0. DF...30-15. BEAUTIFUL cross-court backhand from Coric; 30-all.

Good serve; 40-30. Annnd an ACE seals the game.

Eeek, Borna starts off with a DF; 0-15. Annnd then he sprays a forehand long; 0-30. Much better first serve this time; 15-30. Beautiful from Coric, right on the line; 30-all.
