Re: Daniel Nestor

I'm a big fan of his serve & volley game. When he used to play singles a lot, he was pretty dangerous on grass surface or carpet or fast surfaces in general. I still remember his Davis Cup victory over Guga Kuerten that went to five sets.

Re: Daniel Nestor

Nice win against the Brian brothers tonight, in his 25th consecutive Canadian Open. Will Nestor win in Montreal for the first time?

Re: Daniel Nestor

I just read on the doubles board that he and Lindstedt (sp?)split. Anyone know who his new partner is?

Well that sucks. He should go back with Nenad Zimonjic

Re: Daniel Nestor

Well interesting news is that Nestor will be playing doubles at the US Open with Vasek Posposil!

that's nice! I guess they want to hone their partnership for the Davis Cup doubles rubber.

How come Danny doesn't team up with Adil Shamasdin?

Adil is not very good sadly. I mean compared to me and you, he's a legend, but compared to actual tennis players he's a scrub.

Re: Daniel Nestor

Plus if he teamed with Adil, since Adil's ranking is around 100, they wouldn't get entry into a lot of ATP events.

Re: Daniel Nestor

Yes, I think that Vasek's jump in the rankings has made him a far more useful partner for Nestor because they will qualify for more ATP tournaments. I guess that the break with Lindstedt wasn't happy since it caught the Swede totally by surprise.

My guess is that Danny isn't wasting time on unproductive partnerships at this stage in his career. If he doesn't find a good partnership soon I wonder if he'll continue to play much longer. He could likely move onto the Champions tour if he wants to keep playing or maybe just play with his children for a while.
