Third seed Dominic Thiem has crashed out of the ATP Montreal Masters at the hands of Diego Schwartzman.

In the day's other second-round contest, 20-year-old Jared Donaldson (100/1) had few problems in overcoming Benoit Paire 6-2 7-5. Thiem, who was down a set and a break, led the Argentine by 5-2 in the decider and held a total of four matchpoints, but lost the last five games of the match to the world No. 36 who collected his first career Top 10 win.

Donaldson's fellow Americans Sam Querrey (40/1) and Jack Sock (33/1) also saw off French opponents, with the former requiring three sets to see off qualifier Vincent Millot while 15th seed Sock needed just two to beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert. American Ernesto Escobedo took his spot and made the most of it beating Nikoloz Basilashvili 7-6 (4), 6-4.

Querrey goes on to face another Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the 2014 Rogers Cup champion in the round of 32.

The home crowd had something to celebrate when 18-year-old wild card Denis Shapovalov (150/1) overcame a difference of 79 places in the world rankings and saved four match points in his 4-6 7-6 (10/8) 6-4 victory against Rogerio Dutra Silva.

Ninth seed David Goffin came from a set down to beat Yuichi Sugita 4-6 6-1 6-4, while 11th seed Pablo Carreno Busta also came through in three sets against Karen Khachanov.

Paolo Lorenzi saw off Frances Tiafoe in three sets to tee up a second-round meeting with Nick Kyrgios, but world No.28 Feliciano Lopez was shocked by Hyeon Chung, who clinched a deciding tiebreak.

Tomas Berdych was expected to start the Center Court session against but the Czech withdrew with a rib injury.
