According to the Australian Open website, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Daniel Nestor of Toronto, Ontario won his third Australian Open mixed doubles title on Sunday when he along with Kristina Mladenovic of France defeated Horia Tecau of Romania and Sania Mirza of India 6-3, 6-2.

Nestor previously won the mixed doubles titles at the Australian Open in 2007 and 2011. It was his fourth mixed doubles grand slam championship to go along with his eight championships in men's doubles.

Nestor continues to play tennis at a very high level at the age of 41, and will next suit up for Canada in a very important men's doubles match in the first round of the Davis Cup on Saturday.

Nestor, along with Sebastien Lareau of Montreal won the gold medal in men's doubles at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney when they upset the heavily favoured Australian team of Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, 7-6.
