World No. 6 doubles player Daniel Nestor headlines the impressive doubles field for this year's Hall of Fame Tennis Championships. The 41-year-old Nestor has 85 total doubles titles under his belt, including the 2002 Australian Open, 2004 US Open, two Wimbledon titles, four French Open titles and four tournament titles already in 2014. This is Nestor's first time competing on the historic International Tennis Hall of Fame grass courts since 1994 and he will be partnering up with fellow Canadian Adil Shamasdin, who was a doubles finalist in Newport in 2011. Last week, Nestor was a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon.
The No. 1 seed team of Santiago Gonzalez and Scott Lipsky are both top-50 players who have a combined 21 titles throughout their careers. They will look to win back their 2012 title in their third consecutive year competing together in Newport. This is also the third consecutive year where they have won two titles in one year, with their tournament wins at the 2014 Dusseldorf Open and the 2014 Portugal Open.
British brothers Ken and Neal Skupski will also be competing in Newport together for the first time. They are fresh off of making the semifinals at Aegon International, which is their fifth semifinal appearance in this year alone. The pair ar ranked in the world top-75.
The Australian duo of Chris Guccione and Lleyton Hewitt are back for their third time competing in Newport as doubles partners. Guccione's lone doubles title came at the 2010 Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, which he won when paired with Carsten Ball. Although Hewitt is known mostly for his success in singles, he does have a 2000 US Open doubles title to add to his resume.
