Third round Matinee match results in Toronto

Andrea Petkovic is through to the quarter-finals of Rogers Cup presented by National Bank with a surprisingly straightforward 6-1, 6-2 victory over Petra Kvitova.

The 2011 Wimbledon champion, who was a tad rusty in her opening match and appeared to still not be 100 per cent in match form, just could not get anything going against Petkovic.

In the first match of the day, Samantha Stosur defeated Li Na in the round of 16's opening match with a 6-2, 6-4 victory.

The third-round match was Li's first of the tournament after she received a first-round a bye and second-round walkover, and her first since Wimbledon nearly two months ago, and it appeared the extra rest did not help her. Instead, the world No. 6 looked out of sorts in the windy conditions and had trouble with Stosur's strong kick serve.

Stosur has definitely turned her game up a notch since she struggled in her first-round match against Ayumi Morita, as she has since eased through her next two contests in straight sets en route to the quarters.
