Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic reached the second round of the Toronto Masters Tuesday, with both men polishing their pre-U.S. Open form.Wawrinka has been struggling to find his best form since returning to the ATP Tour after two knee operations a year ago and has slumped to 195 in the world rankings.The 33-year-old Wawrinka broke late in the second set to level the match, and completed his fightback on a second match point as he also broke in the 12th game of the decider.Djokovic, a four-time winner in Canada, double-faulted while serving for the match to slip into a second-set tiebreak, but he finished the job for a second-round spot.Djokovic won in 90 minutes with nine aces; he now stands 36-6 at the event and next plays Canada's Peter Polansky.
