A year ago, Mirnyi and Nestor had claimed their maiden Grand Slam championship together at Roland Garros in doubles by beating Juan Sebastian Cabal and Eduardo Schwank. It is their 7th tour-level team title since joining hands as a team at the beginning of the 2011 season.
After the match, Nestor quoted, "Unbelievable. It's a great feeling. It might have been not the best match by some of us on the court today, including myself and definitely them. But Max was very solid from start to finish. He played great. He carried us. That was important today. Regardless of the fact, a slam is a slam and to beat the best team probably of all time in the finals is a good feeling."
Playing against the Bryan brothers for the second time this season, top pair of Mirnyi and Nestor avenged their straight-sets loss they had suffered in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters final in April.
When asked about the celebration, Mirnyi quoted, "We just probably have too much respect for the opposition today. We've beaten them many times. We've lost to them probably more times than beat them. Just the mutual respect of we were happy we won. You don't want to sort of rub it in because maybe they didn't play their best today."
On the other hand, Bob Bryan lamented, “Today just wasn't our day. They came out aggressive and hit some good shots. I was a little bit cold and heavy at the beginning and maybe it caught us a little bit off guard. It's disappointing because we had been playing some really good ball. But they hit some great serves when they needed it."
