    i'm not 100% sure but i think that during the single final of paris-bercy i heard a commentator saying that daniel nestor has won every tournament (in double) he ever entered at least once (or something like that). could this be true ?

    of course, if we are nit-picking, i guess we could find some tournaments he didn't win because of the evolution of the calendar (new events, disappeared events, etc.) but it seems he at least won all the slams, the masters cup, the olympic gold medal and 9 different masters-series !
    (paris-bercy was missing to his collection, and he just won it with zimonjic)

    that's quite an achievement. :)
    congratulations to him !

    1)Yes it's true. You heard the commentator correctly.

    2) He has to date 64 titles more than any active player

    3)He now has earned OVER 1 million USD & 9 titles this year to date


    No wonder he is still playing...started in 1991, and is reaching his peak at age 37


    He is one of Canada's sports greats and I bet only about 2 % of Canadians have ever heard of him. Move over, Wayne.

    So much for tennis in this country. Or anywhere else as far as that goes.

    Jesse Levine's actually canadian, but he's self-proclaimed "100% american" Same goes for Rusedski, instead going british. A shame, the only other guy that worht mentioning in Canadian tennis at the moment is Dancevic. I don't think tennis players like associating themselves with canadians...
