Nadal crashes out of Wimbledon.
July 7, 2015 Two-times champion Rafa Nadal has crashed out in the second round of Wimbledon on Thursday July 2 in a tough bout with Germany’s Dustin Brown, in four sets.
Rafal, trailed with injury and below-par performances, fell 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4 as Brown, ranked 102 in the world, unleashed a barrage of thunderous serves and ground strokes, mixed with clever drop shots. The German looked to rush the Spaniard from the start, blasting winners at every opportunity and squeezing Nadal at the net to cut off his options in a classic style that whipped the Wimbledon crowd into frenzy.
Since finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic in the 2011 final, former world number one Nadal has now failed to advance past the last 16 of the grass court major as he lost to a qualifier for the first time in any grand slam.
