Nick Kyrgios of Australia played the match of his life, beating Nadal 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3 to advance to the quarterfinals.
Kyrgios is the lowest player ever to beat a #1 ranked player at a Grand Slam event in 22 years.
Nadal was gracious in defeat, commending Kyrgios for his strong play. Via Yahoo:
This isn't the first time Nadal has lost at Wimbledon to a low-ranked opponent. Last year, he lost to 135th-ranked Steve Darcis. The year before, it was 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol.
Nadal is still a wizard on clay and as good as anyone on the planet on hard court, but it looks like grass might be his kryptonite.
Either way, it should be exciting to see how Kyrgios' career ascends from here. He's expected to be one of the next great players, and this was a great coming out party for him.
