BRISBANE INTERNATIONAL 2014
Fyrstenberg/Nestor Triumph In Brisbane
by ATP Staff|
Second seeds Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Daniel Nestor capped off a stellar team debut on Sunday by rallying past fourth-seeded Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 6-7(4), 6-4, 10-7 in the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp final.
After dropping the first set tie-break, Fyrstenberg and Nestor broke serve twice en route to taking the second set. The Polish/Canadian duo maintained their momentum to seal the win in one hour and 36 minutes.
Nestor captured his 82nd tour-level trophy and added to his 2012 Brisbane triumph, when he tasted victory with Max Mirnyi. The 41-year-old Nestor has now won at least one tour-level crown 21 years running. Fyrstenberg celebrated his first ATP World Tour title with a partner other than countryman Marcin Matkowski (14 titles together).
Cabal and Farah were both bidding to lift their first ATP World Tour trophy. The Colombians were contesting their second final together, following a runner-up effort at the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur last year.
