While both Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil competed in Indian Wells, Canada’s no. 3 ranked doubles player, Adil Shamasdin was busy winning his third consecutive ATP Challenger title at the Drummondville National Bank Challenger.
Shamasdin took home the trophy alongside big serving Aussie Sam Groth. The pair defeated Matt Reid and John Patrick Smith 6-3, 2-6, 10-8 to extend Shamasdin’s win streak to twelve matches.

Perhaps most impressive is the fact that the 34-year-old native of Pickering, Ontario has won his three titles with three different partners. He won the Bergamo Challenger in Italy with Julian Knowle and the Wroclaw Open in Poland with Andrei Vasilevski before making it three in a row on Sunday alongside Groth.
Shamasdin’s impressive streak has moved him to no. 67 on the ATP doubles rankings, just twelve off his career-high of no. 55.
Shamasdin will look to keep it rolling this week at the Jalisco Open in Guadalajara, Mexico where he is teaming up again with Groth. Pospisil and Denis Shapovalov, last week’s singles champion in Drummondville, are also in the draw.
