2012 Wimbledon Results: Rafael Nadal Upset By Lukas Rosol

On Thursday afternoon, the tennis world was shocked when Rafael Nadal was upset by the unseeded Lukas Rosol in the second round of the 2012 Wimbledon Championship, 6-7 (9-11), 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. While Rosol is unseeded in the tournament, he is the No. 100 player in the world, which is a far-cry away from Nadal.

Rosol is now the lowest ranked player ever to defeat Nadal in a Grand Slam tournament.

After dropping the first set in a tiebreak, Rosol played the match of his life. He won the second and third sets but it appeared Nadal reclaimed the momentum in the fourth. After a delay to close the roof, though, Rosol came out energized and hit some unbelievable shots to pull off the upset.
