Nick Kyrgios defeated Rafael Nadal in Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal lost it to teenager Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon

In rare of the rarest situations in the world of Tennis, a teenager Nick Kyrgios from Australia toppled the No.1 Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon. The wild card entrant Nick surprised the world when he defeated the top seeded Nadal in the fourth round of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 1, 2014. 

Kyrgios is ranked 144 in the world but is rising fast, and probably he is immune to pressure with his boyish enthusiasm and energy. Like many others he stood really strong against the stonewall defense of Nadal, and made a confidence way to 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory. Well, but he is really not getting enough time to celebrate as the men’s quarter finals are due for Wednesday, where he will face another hard serving player Milos Raonic of Canada, positioned at No.8.

After the victory, Kyrgios was more positive and said that he was actually playing abandon, having no title to uphold, he was like a free bird, with just one goal. And he became surprisingly happy when he saw his twitter fans increasing by 25000 in the fourth set of the match.

Even though Nadal had also defeated the top seeded Roger Federer when he was only 19 in the semi-finals of the French Open, but he was still fourth seeded player. While Kyrgios is an unseeded player who just got entry into the Wimbledon field by virtue of winning a second-level grass court event last month.
