Madrid win moves Nestor to third all-time in doubles titles

By Asif Hossain

Sydney 2000 gold medallist Daniel Nestor was the Canadian half of the winning Madrid Masters men’s doubles team in Spain on Sunday.

Partnering with Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia, 41-year old Nestor dispatched American brothers Bob and Mike Bryan 6-4, 6-2.

It was the 139th doubles final appearance for Nestor, who has 84 all-time doubles titles, third behind the Bryan brothers – Mike (100) and Bob (98).

At the 2000 Games Nestor won the Olympic gold medal with Canadian partner Sébastien Lareau.  That stands as Canada’s only Olympic medal in tennis.
