Falling to Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka in the third round at the Shanghai Masters Thursday, Milos Raonic's quest to compete in three consecutive finals has come to an end.

Raonic, Canada's top-ranked men's singles player at No. 10 on the ATP Tour, lost in straight sets, 7-6(2), 6-4. He managed 11 aces in the 80-minute match, which is low by the Thornhill, Ont., native's standards.

In the two weeks leading up to Shanghai, Raonic, 22, won the Thailand Open and was a finalist at the Japan Open.

Meanwhile, in the men's doubles bracket Thursday, two Canadians went head-to-head.

Vernon, B.C.'s Vasek Pospisil and partner Robert Lindstedt defeated fellow Canuck Daniel Nestor and partner Leander Paes in three sets, 7-5, 3-6, 13-11.

Pospisil and Lindstedt are now off to the third round when they'll meet Jamie Murray and John Peers Friday.
