Nadal Stunned in Second-Round Knockout

29 Jun

DAMN!…I soooooo wanted Nole to be the one to do this!!!

Nadal in loser mode…and against whom?

An “unknown Czech” knocks him outta Wimbledon…

“But Rosol, who has never gone beyond the third round of a grand slam, broke serve in the opening game of the second set and stunned Nadal with a succession of venomous serves and pinpoint groundstrokes.

Nadal was powerless to stem the tide and was clearly upset by the 26-year-old Czech’s aggressive style but the 11-times grand slam winner dug in to break serve at the start of the fourth set and repeated the feat to level at two sets all.

Officials decided to close the roof to enable the match to be finished and after a half-hour delay the players returned.

Most people expected Nadal to ease through the deciding set but Rosol had other ideas.

The Czech immediately broke serve and continued to subject the world number two to a barrage of big serves and outrageous winners, sealing victory with an ace to set up a third-round match against German Philipp Kohlschreiber.

It was the first time Nadal had lost before the third round of a grand slam since he was beaten by Gilles Mueller in the second round at Wimbledon in 2005.”

Rafa being as gracious a loser as a Catalan is capable of…

 

And Nole acting like a sixteen-year-old….. :)
