Zimonjic and Llodra failed to win Shanghai title

Second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor captured their third ATP World Tour doubles crown as they saved two match points to defeat third seeds Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic 3-6, 6-1, 12-10 on Sunday in the Shanghai Rolex Masters final.

After breaking serve twice in the second set to level the match, the Belarusian-Canadian duo trailed 8-9 and 9-10 in the Match Tie-break before converting their first match point opportunity for victory in 69 minutes.

Both Mirnyi-Nestor and Llodra-Zimonjic have already clinched their berths at the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, to be held at London’s O2 Arena next month. Llodra and Zimonjic were contesting their seventh final of the season and were looking to win their second straight title after victory at the China Open in Beijing last week (d. Lindstedt-Tecau).
