The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Two-times cham­pion Rafa Nadal's ap­palling re­cent run at Wim­ble­don con­tin­ued last Thurs­day as he crashed out in the sec­ond round af­ter be­ing out-mus­cled and out-thought in four sets by an inspired Dustin Brown of Ger­many. The Spa­niard, who has slipped down the sport's peck­ing or­der and was seeded 10 af­ter a year of in­jury and be­low-par per­for­mances, fell 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4 as Brown, ranked 102 in the world, un­leashed a bar­rage of thun­der­ous serves and ground strokes, mixed with clever drop shots to seal a shock vic­tory.
