Richard is out of the Rogers Cup after a loss to Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.

Richard, a finalist in Montreal last year, missed two match points in the second set tie break before succombing to defeat.

It was a competitive match between Richie and Verdasco. The Spaniard struggled with his consistency in the first set and Richard took advantage of this breaking in the second game. Richard mixed up his game to great effect and sealed the first set.

Richard looked in control of the second set, but Verdasco forced it to a tie break, where he saved two match points before forcing a third set decider.

Richard was put on the back foot early in the final set when he was broken in the third game. Despite holding chances to break back, Richard's game was a little too defensive, and Verdasco claimed victory.

Richard's next tournament will be next week at the Masters event in Cincinnati.
