SYDNEY, N.S. — Canada's Daniel Nestor has hit a milestone on the ATP Tour by earning the 1,000 match victory of his pro career.

Nestor, along with partner Marcelo Melo of Brazil, beat France's Jeremy Chardy and India's Leander Paes 6-4, 6-4 on Monday in men's doubles action at the Apia International Sydney to reach the mark.

The 43-year-old Nestor, who turned pro in 1991, has won 88 men's doubles titles on the ATP Tour and a gold medal for Canada at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
