News & Analysis
Nestor and Mirnyi to split
Aaron Morrissey
Thursday, September 13, 2012

The doubles team of Daniel Nestor and Max Mirnyi will end their partnership at the end of this season, the Canadian journalist Tom Tebbutt reported in hisoblog. The pair played together for two years, won two Roland Garros titles, and reached No. 1.

“Max isn’t confirmed to play a full season next year, he’s a little bit skeptical about his elbow,” Nestor said. “It’s a little bit hard for me to wait until the last second to see what he’s going to do. So I just decided to switch.”

Nestor, 40, will team up with 38-year-old Indian Mahesh Bhupathi, who has been playing with his countryman Rohan Bopanna.

“He’s eager and I’ve had a lot respect for his accomplishments over the years,” said Nestor, who has won 79 doubles titles in his career. “He’s a great doubles player and he has great doubles instincts. I feel that if he can make the transition well to the other side (the deuce court), we can be a very good team.”

Nestor also told Tebbutt that next year, Nenad Zimonjic will play with Robert Linstedt, and Mirnyi will play with Horia Tecau.

If Mirnyi has problems, it will suck for Horia:|

I had a feeling that Zimonjic and Bhupathi would play together. Now, this is a woderful news. Who will Bopanna play with? Will Qureshi and he partner again?

These teams are just :facepalm:

Lind/Tec finally split, Horia gets a likeable partner for a change. But, with Mirnyi's problems, this team isn't going to last long. Well, atleast we will have new runner-ups at Wimbledon :lol:

Due to his partnership with Nestor, I may end up supporting Bhupathi for a change :facepalm:

The only good thing is that the Indo-Pak express will be getting back together.

Hope Bhupathi gets out of mens doubles gs deficit. He's hasn't won it from last 10 years. I'm gonna support him back for two reasons: 1) he teaming up Nestor; 2) terminating quite a bad partnership with Bopanna.

It will be nice if Bopanna teams again with Qureshi. But, are you sure about this, as you're saying?

Lins/Tec :facepalm:
Mirnyi :facepalm:

Zimonjic should be happy because he broke his partnership with Llodra. BTW, People win GS when they team with :worship:Nestor:worship:. Same happened to Zimonjic and Mirnyi. I still can't believe that Bhupathi has teamed Nestor.

Just like that... it will be good to see him with a good partner. He didn't have a such good partner excluding Leander Paes. Now i think, both Leander and Mahesh would be quite equally competitive in Men's Doubles.

Absolutely right...Actually with Mirnyi he was lethal in 2003-04..But after that he didn't have good partners and Mark Knowles was way past its prime in 2008-09..So finally if they click Mahesh would be very competitive...All the best for this team 2013...And my support would with them for sure :)

Very interesting.

Really hope Tecau can finally win Wimbledon though, deserves it so much.

Dunno why Lindstedt/Tecau split. They had something going on. Won their first M1000 just weeks ago an qualified for WTF much earlier than last year. Mirnyi is plagued by injuries...

Zimonjic/Llodra hasn't done so well it seems and I honestly don't know who's fault that is. But Lindstedt and Tecau complemented their games very well and i'd be surprised if either of Mirnyi/Tecau or Lindstedt/Zimonjic actually does better. But you never know with doubles.

doubles players seem to like a fresh start every now and then. Just a bit odd to break up when you do really well in a season

They must have been tired mentally and they must have felt they won't win a slam together. Such a losing history stays deeply in you and I think it's even tougher for a team than it is for a singles player to deal with it.
