.Max Mirnyi recorded his 600th doubles match win on Thursday at the Shanghai Rolex Masters in tandem with Daniel Nestor. The 35-year-old Mirnyi is the 18th player in ATP World Tour history to reach the milestone.


The second seeds beat Tomas Berdych and Nenad Zimonjic 6-2, 7-6(5) in 79 minutes for a place in the quarter-finals. It was their 40th victory of the season (40-14 overall).


“It was a very close match,” Mirnyi told ATPWorldTour.com. “We found ourselves at sudden death deuce on three or four occasions. The second set tie-break could have gone either way, so to get my 600th match win in Shanghai, after months of getting closer, is very exciting.


“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about this milestone before the match today. Today, I was trying to focus on my game as we came up against two very strong opponents. We had to be at our best to win and fortunately this milestone came along with it.”
