  1. I never thought I’d see Nestor play deuce court in doubles.

    Nestor played deuce court with lefty Melzer at Wimbledon for the first two sets before switching back to Ad court.

    Nestor is playing deuce court with Sock at WTT.

    I know Sock often plays ad court and Melzer can rip it from that ad side..but is Nestor getting ready for champions tour singles play or something?

    I never thought I’d see him return doubles deuce court side ever.

    • They practiced both before Wimbledon started, and when I saw it happening (I was watching Raonic practice a few courts away), I went over to see if my eyes had deceived me.
      Melzer assured me that he would NEVER let Nestor play the deuce side and I wasn’t to worry, LOLOL.
      Nestor told me he played the deuce with Raonic, when they played doubles at Queen’s. But before that, it was probably with …. Grant Connell.
      He’s not really in a position to pull much rank these days. And yes, Sock plays ad court (which moved Pospisil to the deuce court, too) and he just won Wimbledon. So, I mean, that’s kind of a no-brainer.
      Nestor told me he actually finds volleying just as easy on that side. The challenge for him, he told me, was the second shot. He has trouble getting out of the way in time to hit it.

      • Sock really likes to run around and hit that inside out forehand too on that side. I just thought the switch for Nestor to return deuce court would cause a bigger disadvantage on returns than the gains from having a singles player returning on his preferred doubles court side.

        I wouldn’t have thought it to be too big a deal for Melzer and Sock to switch to deuce court as they were playing singles too.

        I’m not sure Nestor hit many return winners on the deuce side. I like his lefty forehand returns down the line and inside out opposite court backhand winner returns better on the ad side.

        I guess why not try everything out a couple more times before retiring!

        • Well, you have a few misconceptions there! I think in your mind’s eye you’re seeing a younger Nestor who plays every week with a regular partner. That’s not the Nestor of 2018.

  2. I was surprised to see FAA extending his Euro clay tour after Wimby, rather than playing the canadian challenger swing leading up to the Rogers Cup. I guess the WC this week may have helped that. Do you know if he is planning to play next week in Europe as well, or returning home to rest before getting ready for Rogers Cup? thanks

    • Yes, he’s been there since mid-April, except for about 10 days at home during the French Open.
      This was his sixth consecutive week. I think he’s done. I hope he’s done.
      It’s an … interesting tournament schedule.
