LONDON (AP) -- Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Daniel Nestor of Canada won the doubles title at the ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday, beating Polish duo Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski 7-5, 6-3 in the final.
Mirnyi and Nestor rallied from a break down to win the first set and earned the only break of the second. Nestor served out the match at love, with Mirnyi sealing the victory with a forehand smash at the net.
