TORONTO -- As the top-ranked doubles tennis player in the world, Toronto's Daniel Nestor offers Canada one of its best medal hopes for the 2012 London Olympics.
Nestor will team up with Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver for the men's doubles event, which will be held July 28 to Aug. 5 on the storied grass courts of the All England Club in Wimbledon.
Nestor, making his fifth straight appearance at the Games, and Pospisil, a first-time Olympian, hold a 2-0 Davis Cup record, including a pivotal win against grand slam champions Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram during Canada's World Group playoff against Israel last September.
At the 2000 Sydney Games, Nestor won gold with partner Sebastien Lareau, marking the first, and only, tennis medal in Canadian history. He has won 78 career titles in men's double play, including eight major championships, most recently the 2012 French Open.
