Top 5 men's doubles players/teams who failed to make an impact in singles
Proof that two heads are definitely better than oneThe doubles scene in the history of tennis has been synonymous with some great names gracing the courts with their breathtaking tennis. As good as they were when it came to doubles, quite a few of them have found it difficult to consistently make a mark in the singles format of the game. In fact, only a handful of players have been able to shine consistently in both singles and doubles like John McEnroe, Stefan Edberg, Martina Navratilova and Martina Hingis, to name a few. Here, we take a look at some of the greatest doubles players who fall into that category.
#5 Daniel Nestor
Canadian Daniel Nestor has won 88 men's doubles titles, including a Gold medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics, 4 ATP World Tour Finals, and 8 Grand Slam men's doubles titles. In addition, he has won 4 Grand slam mixed doubles titles. He also helped Canada reach a Davis Cup semifinal in 2013.
In sharp contrast to his doubles record, Nestor has just been unable to make a mark in singles. His career win-loss record in singles stands at 85-118, and he has not managed to win even a single ATP title. His career-highest ATP singles ranking is 58. His best performance in a major till date is reaching the round of 16 in Wimbledon in 1999.
