Olympic gold medallist Daniel Nestor made his fifth consecutive appearance at the Olympic Games in 2012. In London he competed in the men’s doubles tournament with partner Vasek Pospisil. The duo finished in ninth place.

Nestor has competed in every Olympic Games since 1996. It was at the Sydney 2000 Games where the duo of Nestor and Sébastien Lareau captured gold by defeating the home-country Australian team of Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde.

In 2012, Nestor won the French Open men’s doubles title with Belarusian partner Max Mirnyi and repeated their performance from 2011. It was Nestor’s third straight French Open title to go with the one he won in 2007. Nestor also holds two Wimbledon doubles titles from 2008 and 2009 with Nenad Zimonjić and titles from the Australian Open (2002) and the U.S. Open (2004) with Mark Knowles. His 2008 Wimbledon title completed a career Golden Slam (all four Grand Slam tournaments and Olympic  gold).

With a total of eight Grand Slam titles, with three different partners, Nestor is the most successful doubles player in Canadian history.

Nestor was born in Serbia and moved to Toronto with his parents in 1976.
