Zimonjic and Nestor begin quest for third Wimbledon crown

Seeded third, Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor began their quest for a third Wimbledon doubles crown on Wednesday with a 7-6(5), 6-3, 6-4 victory over Italians Paolo Lorenzi and Andreas Seppi in the first round.

The Serbian-Canadian duo, who reunited at the beginning of 2013 after a three-year separation, have already added three ATP World Tour titles this season (Sydney, Madrid, Rome) to take their team’s haul to 27 trophies.

Their next opponents will be German duo Dustin Brown and Jan-Lennard Struff.
