43-year-old Daniel Nestor in doubles final at Australian Open

The grumpy old men are going to the men’s doubles final at the Australian Open.

Canadian Daniel Nestor, now 43-years-old, along with his 37-year-old partner Radek Stepanek (Czech Republic), are one win away from taking the top prize. The unseeded pair upset Pablo Cuevas and Marcel Granollers (7-6, 6-4) in the semis to reach the final.

You can watch the match on TSN, following the women’s singles final that begins at 12:30am PST on Friday night/Saturday morning.

Nestor and Stepanek will be up against the #7 seeded pair of Jamie Murray (Great Britain) and Bruno Soares (Brazil). Murray and Soares have never won a Grand Slam title, though the 29 and 33 year-olds will have youth on their side.


Stepanek won the Australian Open doubles title in 2012, and the US Open in 2013. Nestor last won the Australian Open 14 years ago, and has won 8 Grand Slam doubles titles in his career.

It appears the old guy still has some gas left in the tank.
