Canadian Daniel Nestor and French partner Kristina Mladenovic are a win away from claiming a spot in the mixed doubles final at Wimbledon.

Nestor and Mladenovic dropped Romanian Horia Tecau and his Indian teammate Sania Mirza in straight sets 7-6(5), 7-6(5).

The pair advances to Saturday's semifinal against Serbia's Nenad Zimonjic and Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik.

The 40-year-old Nestor is in search of his best finish at a Wimbledon event after bowing out in the semis in 2007 and 2011.

A win on Saturday will see Nestor into his sixth Grand Slam mixed doubles final in his career.

He's previously claimed two Grand Slam titles in mixed doubles, both at the Australian Open in 2007 and 2011.
