Maybe they had lunch reservations at one of Melbourne's hip eateries or wanted some down time on St. Kilda beach.
Whatever the case, Canadian Daniel Nestor and partner Max Mirnyi of Belarus took care of business in a hurry Wednesday morning at the Australian Open, efficiently eliminating Australian duo Benjamin Mitchell and Matt Reid in under an hour.
All it took was 49 minutes of work for the tournament's second seeds to post a 6-2, 6-2 win over the Aussies in their opening-round match. Nestor and Mirnyi converted on four of six break point opportunities to end this one quickly.
Nestor and Mirnyi, semifinalists last year in Melbourne, will next play either the pair of Sergiy Stakhovsky (Ukraine) and Mikhail Youzhny (Russia) or the Colombian duo of Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.
Expect another speedy showing for Nestor and Mirnyi in Round Two.
