Daniel Nestor, Nenad Zimonjic win Madrid Masters doubles title

Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic won their second Madrid Masters doubles title, beating Americans Bob and Mike Bryan 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday.

The 58-minute victory ended the Americans' win streak at 24 matches with titles at their last five events.

"Today we played amazing, that was the most important thing," said Nestor. "We played well on a big occasion when it really mattered."

Nestor, 41, from Toronto, claimed his fifth trophy in the Spanish capital after capturing it three times with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas (2002, 2004, 2009). He has won the last two ('09, '14) with Zimonjic.

Nestor and his Serbian partner have won 26 titles together, including two this year. They won in Sydney in January and have lost in the final in Dubai and Barcelona on clay.

Nestor also won the Brisbane title alongside Mariusz Fyrstenberg in the opening week of the season.
