Paes-Dlouhy fall in Toronto semis

July 27, 2008 12:27 IST

Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic ended the run of India's Leander Paes and Czech Lukas Dlouhy in the semi-final of the Rogers Cup in Toronto on Saturday.

Nestor-Zimonjic, who had beaten the Indo-Czech duo in the semi-finals at Wimbledon, scored a 6-3, 7-6(5) to set up a final with top seeds Mike and Bob Bryan.

Nestor is through to his second Toronto final, having won the title in 2000 with countryman Sebastien Lareau, while Zimonjic's previous best finish was the quarterfinals in 2006 (w/Santoro).

The Bryans won the Canada title in 2002 (d. Knowles/Nestor) and 2006 (d. Hanley/Ullyett) and now improve their event record to 17-5.
