TORONTO (AP) -- Top-seeded Novak Djokovic was beaten 6-2, 6-2 by 13th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a third-round upset at the Rogers Cup on Thursday.

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 clinched the win when Djokovic's return went wide.

Tsonga will play eighth-seeded Andy Murray in the quarterfinals. Murray advanced when third-round opponent Richard Gasquet withdrew because of an abdominal strain.

Djokovic's defeat was the second big upset of the day. Third-seeded Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland had earlier lost 7-6 (8), 7-5 to South Africa's Kevin Anderson.
