Montreal: It was a day of unexpected absences at the Rogers Cup on Tuesday. Andrea Petkovic failed to make her match, Svetlana Kuznetsova pulled out injured, the power went out, and so too did an inconsistent Eugenie Bouchard.

Amid the surprising run of events, there were some predictable outcomes. Third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska won through to the second round with a 7-5, 7-5 win over Barbara Zahlavova Strycova, while Ana Ivanovic and Carolina Wozniacki both breezed through.

Ivanovic beat Timea Bacsinszky 6-1, 6-2 while Wozniacki was much too good for veteran Daniel Hantuchova, winning 6-1, 6-1.
