Third seeds Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic advanced with a 6-4, 6-3 win over the British duo of Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins, as first-round doubles action got underway Tuesday at the US Open.

Nestor and Zimonjic are playing together in New York for the first time since 2010. They achieved their team’s best result the previous year, when they reached the quarter-finals. 

Seventh-seeded Spaniards David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco, the reigning Barclays ATP World Tour Finals champions, defeated Americans Nicholas Monroe and Donald Young 6-4, 6-4. They next meet Mate Pavic and Andre Sa, who ousted another American duo, Chase Buchanan and Tennys Sandgren, 6-2, 6-3.

A third American pairing, Peter Kobelt and Hunter Reese, fell to 10th-seeded Frenchmen Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut 6-4, 6-1.

Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen, the No. 12 seeds, needed just 50 minutes to cruise past Tomasz Bednarek and Johan Brunstrom 6-3, 6-1. The American-South African duo reached the Australian Open final earlier this year.

Italians Daniele Bracciali and Andreas Seppi, meanwhile, prevailed against No. 13 seeds and 2010 finalists Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi 7-6(10), 4-6, 7-6(5).
