Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic retain Wimbledon crown

Posted by Lana On 7/05/2009 02:26:00 PM


Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic defeated Bob and Mike Bryan 7-6 (9/7), 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 to retain Wimbledon men's doubles title.

Speaking after the match, Nestor described retaining the title as a "great accomplishment". "It's great to come back here. One of the first things I noticed was our name on the board, on the big plaque. Now we get it twice. It's obviously going to be special to come back next year and see that.

"We played two solid finals. I thought we played pretty well from start to finish. Those guys are obviously a great team. We both served well, returned well when we had to. Nenad played great. It's great to be back as champions."

Zimonjic agreed: "It's always special to play on the Centre Court, a full stadium. I have to say that this is the only place with such a big tradition, and the doubles is still very popular."

Nestor and Zimonjic were playing in their third Grand Slam final together. Besides winning the Wimbledon title last year, they lost in the 2008 French Open final.

Nestor also spoke of his delight at winning a second title with Zimonjic. "It's amazing. We started playing together to win Grand Slams. That's what we've done. Unfortunately, this year at the French Open I played a bad match in the semis. I thought we could have easily won that slam too.

"The way we play together, we give ourselves a chance to win every tournament and every Grand Slam. We have a good chance of winning on every surface, I think, which is nice."


The Bryan brothers, who have won seven major titles together, entered the match on Centre Court without having dropped a set at the All England Club this year.

"I haven't lost serve in doubles or mixed in probably 2 1/2 years," Bob Bryan said. "I didn't make my first serves and they made some good returns. But you can't make any excuses."

The difference was the way Nestor and Zimonjic held serve, Bob Bryan said.

"It's a game of inches and when you're playing two guys who are serving close to 130 (mph), and you're not getting a lot of sniffs on your return, it's a dice roll," Bob Bryan said. "They were the better team today and I have to give them a lot of credit."
