Were you looking forward to watching Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon this year? Er, well, so much for that! Despite the fact that Nadal was a heavy favorite to defeat Steve Darcis—who is currently ranked 135th in the world—in the first round of Wimbledon today, Darcis scored a major upset by knocking Nadal off. And he didn't just beat him. He dominated Nadal in straight sets 7-6, 7-6, 6-4.
It's the first time Nadal has ever lost in the first round of a major. It should be pointed out that Nadal did lose in the second round at Wimbledon last year. But this is obviously still a huge upset. Enjoy taking some time off from tennis, Nadal fans!
