The game would be remembered for the way Rosol made the Spaniard run around the court. He had a very powerful game to oust the Spaniard out of the competition. He hit a total of 22 aces and had violent groundstrokes, reported Associated Press. It was this aggression and powerful groundstrokes shown by the Czech player on the court that led to Nadal's downfall. During the process, Rosol also became the lowest ranked player to defeat the two- time Wimbledon champion.
The Spaniard took the defeat in a positive manner possible. He said that it is only a Tennis match and not a tragedy. The player has always been one of the most respected players in the circuit and such kind of statements just substantiates the point. Twitter has been going abuzz about Nadal's exit. Chris Stratford tweeted, “Note to all sportsmen: watch how Nadal took defeat. Inwardly digest. Repeat at all times”.
With this defeat, it is sure that the Czech would surely pose a threat in the future rounds of the competition. His confidence level must have sky rocketed. So, the major title contenders have been reduced to primarily three players, Djokovic, Federer and Murray. Who among them will take full advantage of Nadal's loss?
