Nestor hits milestone in Sydney


Nestor notched up the milestone at the Sydney International, where he partnered world No.1 Marcelo Melo to victory in the first round.

Roger Federer was the third man in history to pass the 1000-landmark last year, following in the footsteps of Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl, but Nestor beat Mike Bryan to become the first to achieve the feat in doubles.

“I have always felt the losses more than enjoyed the wins,” Nestor told “You have these tough losses that you deem are far worse, if you deem to get better.

“I have tried to be the best I can be. I have regrets in singles, but in doubles, I have felt I have done everything that I could. It takes a lot out of you, the stress.

“I’m one of the guys who is a perfectionist, so little things bother me. When I haven’t played so well at big tournaments it can lead to fatigue later in tournaments.”
