"Kiki, she's the best mixed doubles player. She really helps me out on court," the 41-year-old Nestor said. "I actually have to cover less of the court, which is perfect for me, because I'm so old. "

Nestor has won all four majors in men's doubles. This was his second Australian Open mixed doubles title his victory at Melbourne Park in 2007.
