atpworldtour.com: August 23, 2013 Winston-Salem - Top seeds Daniel Nestor of  Canada and India’s Leander Paes won their first ATP World Tour team title on Saturday as they defeated Treat Huey of the Philippines and Great Britain’s Dominic Inglot 7-6(10) 7-5 in the Winston-Salem Open final.

 

Both aged 40, Nestor and Paes were playing together for just the second time in their careers. Their debut came 19 years ago at The Queen’s Club, where they lost in the first round. They are two of the most successful doubles players of all time, with Nestor amassing 81 tour-level titles and Paes 52.

 

Nestor and Paes edged their unseeded opponents in one hour and 33 minutes, having been thwarted on 10 of their 11 break point chances. They lost just one set all week. Their quarter-final win over Paul Hanley and John Peers saw Nestor became the first doubles player to reach the 900 match wins milestone (902-358 match record).

 

Huey and Inglot dropped to a 1-4 finals record together. Their lone title came at last year’s Citi Open in Washington (d. Anderson/Querrey). It was their second runner-up showing of the season, having lost to Andre Begemann and Martin Emmrich in the Power Horse Cup final in Dusseldorf. Full article > Jurgen Melzer wins 5th ATP Title
