Daniel Nestor took home the 88th ATP doubles title of his career on Sunday at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Nestor and his partner, Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France, defeated Marcin Matkowski and Nenad Zimonjic 6-2, 6-2 in the final. The Canadian-French pair were playing in their consecutive Masters 1000 final after finishing runner up to the Bryan brothers last week at the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank in Montreal.

This is Nestor’s third title of the season and his first ever with Roger-Vasselin in just their second tournament together. He won his first two trophies of 2015 at Brisbane and Dubai with Rohana Bopanna.

The win is Nestor’s 28th career Masters 1000 crown and his fifth overall in Cincinnati, exactly 20 years after he won his first Cincy title in 1995.

Nestor is the top seed at this week’s ATP 250 Winston-Salem Open in North Carolina alongside Lukasz Kubot of Poland.
