Less than two weeks after winning a record eighth French Open title, Rafael Nadal lost in a shocking first-round Wimbledon upset against Steve Darcis, falling to the 135th-ranked Belgian in straight sets 7-6, 7-6, 6-4.
The result immediately derails an anticipated quarterfinal matchup between Nadal and Roger Federer.
It’s likely that Nadal’s first-round loss had something to do with nagging injuries and the conditioning difficulties triggered thereby, but no matter how you spin it, this is an epic disappointment for one of the best players in the world and an epic triumph for Belgians and Steves.
