Top-ranked Rafael Nadal survived a marathon first-set tiebreakier before he was finally able to shake off Swiss challenger Stanislas Wawrinka with a 7-6 (12), 6-3 win in the second round of the Rogers Cup on Wednesday.

Defending champion Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic had less trouble advancing.

Second-seeded Djokovic had a 7-5, 7-5 win over France's Julien Benneteau and Murray beat Belgium's Xavier Malisse 7-5, 6-2. Djokovic won the Canadian tournament three years ago, having beaten both Nadal and Roger Federer.

In other second-round matches, No 6-seeded Nikolay Davydenko had a 7-5, 6-1 win over Italian Fabio Fognini, while Jeremy Chardy of France had an upset 6-7 (7), 7-6 (5), 6-2 win over ninth-seeded Fernando Verdasco.

Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov ousted No 12 Mikhail Youzhny 1-6, 7-6 (4), 7-5 and Frenchman Michael Llodra beat No. 14 Nicolas Almagro of Spain 7-6 (5), 6-2.

David Nalbandian continued his impressive comeback from injury with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Tommy Robredo.
