Team Canada is advancing to round two in men’s doubles tennis at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
According to www.ctvolympics.ca, Daniel Nestor of Toronto and Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver beat Horia Tecau and Adrian Ungur of Romania 6-3, 7-6.
It was an excellent day in Canadian tennis. Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Quebec and Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ontario each won their respective singles matches earlier today.
Nestor and Pospisil will now play Serbia in the second round. One of Serbia’s players is Nenad Zimonjic, who is Nestor’s former doubles partner. Zimonjic will play with Janko Tipsarevic, who Raonic beat at a tournament in Chennai, India in January.
It has also been determined who Wozniak will play tomorrow. It will be five-time champion Venus Williams of the United States, who beat Italian and French Open finalist Sara Errani of Italy 6-3, 6-1 in a very commanding victory on the grass courts of Wimbledon.
