2009 Syl Apps Award - Daniel Nestor

Mr. Nestor had his finest year in 2009. During the season on the ATP World Tour Nestor claimed nine doubles titles, the most he has ever won in a single season, including the successful title defence at Wimbledon on his way to becoming the first Canadian tennis player to surpass $1,000,000 in earnings in a single tennis year. Along with his partner Nenad Zimonjic, he spent 13 weeks ranked # 1 in the world. He has now been atop the world ranking a total of 64 weeks in his career. Daniel is one of only five men to have won the Golden Slam joining Agassi, Federer, Woodbridge and Woodforde as the only players to have won all four majors and an Olympic gold medal. Daniel has contributed significantly to the community with his annual invitational tournament at Toronto’s Donalda Club where he has helped raise over $600,000 for the North York Hospital and Tennis Canada’s Go for Gold program since 2003.
