Canadian Olympic gold medalist Daniel Nestor is still playing high quality tennis at the age of 41. According to Robert Bettauer of Rogers Sportsnet, Nestor played his best tennis match in two years on Saturday, as he played with Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, British Columbia to beat Nenad Zimonjic and Illja Bozoljac 6-7, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, 10-8 in a five set thriller in the semi-finals of the Davis Cup from Belgrade, Serbia.
With the win Canada leads Serbia 2-1 in Davis Cup semi-final action and are only one victory away from advancing to their first ever Davis Cup final. With a victory Canada will play the Czech Republic in November. The Czech Republic defeated Argentina 3-0 this weekend.
In Sunday's singles action, Milos Raonic will play world number one Novak Djokovic, with Pospisil playing next against Janko Tipsarevic. Either Raonic or Pospisil needs to deliver an upset in one of the two matches.
Nestor's victory was extremely special for him because he was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia.
In speaking with Sportsnet after his victory, Nestor said if Raonic or Pospisil win today it will be the greatest day in the history of Canadian sport. Time will now tell.
