Doubles pair of World No 1 Rafael Nadal and World No 2 Novak Djokovic, who were making their partnership debut, got defeated by Canadian wild cards Vasek Pospisil and Milos Raonic 5-7, 6-3, 10-8 in the opening round of Rogers Cup on Monday.

Canadian pair won the last three games of the second set, continued with momentum to take 4-0 lead in the match tie breaker and clinched the victory in their favour.
