Nestor nails big ca­reer win

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Canada's Daniel Nestor hit a mile­stone on the ATP Tour on Mon­day by earn­ing the 1,000 match vic­tory of his pro ca­reer.

Nestor, along with part­ner Marcelo Melo of Brazil, beat France's Jeremy Chardy and In­dia's Le­an­der Paes 6-4, 6-4 in men's dou­bles ac­tion at the Apia In­ter­na­tional Syd­ney to reach the mark.

The 43-year-old Nestor, who turned pro in 1991, has won 88 men's dou­bles ti­tles on the ATP Tour and a gold medal for Canada at the 2000 Syd­ney Olympic Games.

Nestor won the Apia In­ter­na­tional Syd­ney tour­na­ment in 2015 for the fifth time, giv­ing him at least one men's dou­bles ti­tle per year for 22 straight years.

Nestor, of Toronto, is now 1,000-412 in his pro ca­reer. The Cana­dian Press
