Canada's Daniel Nestor returns the ball and Belarus' Max Mirnyi, unseen, as they play Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal with Argentina's Eduardo Schwank during their men's doubles final match for the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Saturday June 4, 2011 in Paris. Guess Who singer Burton Cummings, film star Ryan Reynolds and comedian Russell Peters are among the latest inductees to Canada's Walk of Fame. Rounding out the list, announced this morning at a news conference, are astronaut Roberta Bondar, tennis star Nestor, actress Sandra Oh and author Mordecai Richler, who died 10 years ago.

Toronto's Daniel Nestor and partner Max Mirnyi of Belarus moved atop the ATP's world men's doubles rankings Monday.

Nestor and Mirnyi supplanted Americans Bob and Mike Bryan from top spot. The Bryans had held the No. 1 ranking for nearly two years.

This isn't the first time Nestor has held down top spot in the world rankings. In 2010, he and then partner Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia spent 10 weeks at No. 1.

Nestor and Mirnyi have claimed two tournament titles this season while reaching two other finals. They've also made it to the semifinal round in three other events, including the Australian Open.
