Former finalist Milos Raonic upset David Goffin in the first round of the Rogers Cup in Toronto while Kyle Edmund was on the receiving end of a thrashing.

Local hope Raonic, who reached the final in 2013, secured a 6-3, 6-4 victory over the 10th-seeded Goffin.

The Canadian was aggressive on his first serve, winning all 27 points.

“I think I can still serve much better. I don’t think I necessarily served particularly well, so I’ll take the time to work on some things tomorrow,” he said.

“But overall, it was a very good performance as a first performance here. And mentally I was in the right state of mind the whole way through, and I was very disciplined with myself.”

British No 1 Edmund was never at the races as he suffered a 6-1, 6-2 defeat at the hands of 11th seed Diego Schwartzman.

Argentine Schwartzman broke twice in each set to secure his place in the second round.

The 12th-seeded Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta advanced after Yoshihito Nishioka retired.

Jack Sock was the only seeded player to lose as Russian Daniil Medvedev accounted for the 13th seed’s exit with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 victory.

Other players to advance include Marton Fucsovics, Fernando Verdasco, Borna Coric and Benoit Paire.
