But the Czechs broke Nestor in the opening game of the second, and rallied from 0-40 while serving for the set to even the match on a backhand volley from Hradecka. "Im a little bit disappointed, but I thought they played pretty well at the end," Nestor said. "It wasnt us. It was more them playing pretty well."
