Nadal Loses in Wimby 2nd Round to Rosol

Lukas who? Lukas Rosol, who’d never won a tour level grass court match until the last round just took out the #2 seed and 2-time champion Rafa Nadal in 5 tense sets, 6-7(9), 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Most impressively, Rosol held serve for 5 games in a row after breaking Nadal early in the 5th set, and held his last game at love with 2 aces en route. One nervous 1st serve at 15-0 in the final game was the only sign of nerves by the Czech with a current ranking of #100 in the world.
