Mark Knowles Wins French Open Doubles Title

June 11, 2007

Paris - Former UCLA men's tennis player Mark Knowles captured the third Grand Slam title of his career on Saturday, teaming with Daniel Nestor to win the 2007 French Open Doubles Championship.

Knowles and Nestor, seeded sixth, defeated the Czech Republic's Lukas Dlouhy/Pavel Viznor, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in Saturday's final. It marks the third Grand Slam title for Knowles and Nestor, who had previously teamed together to win the Australian Open in 2002 and the U.S. Open in 2004.

Knowles lettered at UCLA from 1990-92, earning All-America honors in 1991 and '92.

It is the 40th Grand Slam title by a UCLA player. Jimmy Connors leads all former Bruins with 10 (eight singles and two doubles).
