Second seeds Nestor and Zimonjic won two of three successive tie-breaks and then finally broke in the early stages of the fourth set to triumph 7-6 (9/7) 6-7 (3/7) 7-6 (7/3) 6-3.

It was a second grand slam title for the Canadian-Serbian partnership, who lost in the final of the French Open last month, and Zimonjic said: “It’s just huge to win this with great champions surrounding me. It’s an amazing feeling to defend the title and go home undefeated.”

Nestor, who has won the other three grand slams with Mark Knowles, added: “We came together to play because we thought we had a greater chance of winning grand slams and we’ve won two already.”

The Canadian also paid tribute to the Bryan twins, who have now lost three of their four Wimbledon finals.

“We feel fortunate to beat the Bryans,” said Nestor. “They’re great champions, they’ll be around for a long time.”
