TORONTO (AP) — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic was upset by 13th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Thursday in the Rogers Cup, falling 6-2, 6-2 in only 63 minutes in the third round.

Djokovic came in with 11 straight wins over Tsonga but was nowhere near adding a 12th.

Tsonga's serve gave Djokovic plenty of trouble. The Frenchman had only eight aces, but Djokovic continually struggled to keep his returns in play.

Serving on match point, Tsonga won when Djokovic's return went wide. Tsonga did some shadow boxing and jumped up and down before waving to a receptive crowd.

Second-seeded Roger Federer avoided an upset, beating Marin Cilic 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-4 in the final match of the night.
