An Olympic veteran will be joining Team Canada for Rio 2016.

The International Tennis Federation has confirmed that Daniel Nestor, a five-time Olympian, has been added to Canada’s tennis team. Nestor replaces Milos Raonic, who withdrew from the Games last week.

Nestor made his Olympic debut at Atlanta 1996, participating in singles and doubles. At Sydney 2000, the Toronto native teamed up with Sébastien Lareau in the doubles event. The two advanced to the final where they defeated the favourites, Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde, winning Canada’s first and only medal in Olympic tennis.

Earlier this year, Nestor became the first doubles player in ATP history to win 1,000 matches. He has appeared in 17 Grand Slam doubles finals, winning eight. His most recent appearance was in the final of this year’s Australian Open, where he and Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic lost to Britain’s Jamie Murray and Brazil’s Bruno Soares.

Nestor is currently ranked ninth in the world doubles rankings. He is currently competing at the Citi Open in Washington, DC.

In Rio, Nestor will partner with Vasek Pospisil in doubles. The two have partnered together in the past, including in last year’s Davis Cup.

Genie Bouchard and Gabriela Dabrowski were also nominated to Canada’s Olympic tennis team last month. Olympic tennis will take place inside Barra’s Olympic Park from August 6-14.
