French Open: Nestor-Zimonjic bt Paes-Dlouhy to win men's doubles title

June 06, 2010 00:29 IST

Canadian Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia beat Leander Paes of India and Czech Lukas Dlouhy 7-5, 6-2 on Saturday to win the French Open men's doubles and clinch their third Grand-Slam title together.

The second seeds added the French Open to the Wimbledon crowns they captured in 2008 and 2009.

"I think it's nice we won here," said Nestor who has lifted seven Grand-Slam doubles titles including one mixed.

The Canadian said he and Zimonjic, who won the French Open mixed doubles with Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik on Thursday, would look to maintain their form at Wimbledon this month.

"Obviously Wimbledon has been great to us," said Nestor. "I think that's still our best surface. It would be nice to try and win three in a row there."
