Tennis - India's Rohan Bopanna will partner Canada's Daniel Nestor during the start of the 2015 season on the ATP doubles circuit, confirming his split with Pakistani partner Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi. Bopanna and Qureshi have struggled in recent months with the Indian dropping to No.
35 in the rankings while Qureshi has dropped to No. 28. Both players are in Shanghai this week for the ATP Masters event there but are playing with different partners this week. Qureshi has not yet decided on who his partner will be.
Bopanna told Indian daily The Times of India that the duo, who are good friends off the court as well, spoke with their coach Scot Davidoff and came to the conclusion that their partnership on the court was not working and hence it would be better to part ways.
While Bopanna is still looking for his first Grand Slam doubles title, 42-year-old Nestor has won eight Grand Slam doubles titles in his career. Nestor is currently ranked No. 4 in the world and has been playing this season with Serbia's Nenad Zimonjic.
