PARIS, FRANCE (NEWS1130) – Canadian Daniel Nestor and Belarusian partner Max Mirnyi reached the quarterfinals of the men’s doubles tournament at the French Open with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Scott Lipski and Rajeev Ram.

It took the Canadian and his partner just 71 minutes to earn the easy victory.

Nestor and Mirnyi converted three of their six break point opportunities, while they held Lipski and Ram without a break point in the match.

The 39-year-old from Toronto and Mirnyi will now take on Australian Matthew Ebden and American Ryan Harrison, with a berth in the semifinals on the line.

Nestor has won the event three times with three different partners. He and Mirnyi are the defending champions but he also won with Serb Nenad Zimonjic in 2010 and in 2007 with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas.
