Andy Murray falls in Montreal; Rafael Nadal advances to quarterfinals

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray tumbled out of the Rogers Cup on Thursday, falling 6-4, 6-3 to Lavia's Ernests Gulbis in the third round.

The second-seeded Murray, a two-time Rogers Cup champion, was playing his second match since his Wimbledon victory. The loss ended the Scot's winning streak at 13 matches.

Rafael Nadal won his third round match, beating Poland's Jerzy Janowicz 7-6 (6), 6-4.

Nadal, the fourth-seeded Spanish star making his first tournament appearance since losing in the first round at Wimbledon, improved his ATP Tour-leading record to 45-3 — including 7-0 on hardcourts. The Rogers Cup winner in 2005 and 2008, Nadal will face Australia's Marinko Matosevic, a 7-6 (7), 6-7 (10), 6-3 winner over France's Benoit Paire .

Defending champion Novak Djokovic played later Thursday.
