You Heard It Here First: Nadal-Killer Goes Down Like The Hindenburg

Just as the hardworking staff predicted, a guy who beat Rafael Nadal one time in ten tries defeated the guy who beat Rafael Nadal one time in one tries at Wimbledon yesterday.

From the New York Times:

For Nadal’s Conqueror, Burst of Stardom Is Followed by an Equally Sudden Exit

Nut graf(s):

Instead of competing under the bright lights of Centre Court, Rosol was squinting in the daylight on Court 12, one of Wimbledon’s minor showplaces, a court flanked by a temporary pavilion and saplings that may someday create some shade.

Instead of Nadal, the man across the net was the 27th-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber, who can walk through Wimbledon village and a lot of other villages undisturbed.

Instead of calm, there was a breeze: shifting the big white clouds overhead and tugging at [Lukas] Rosol’s shorts and his huge flat shots. And instead of a follow-up victory after a huge upset, there was — as is often the case in the head game that is tennis — a quick tumble back to planet earth.

“Of course I was hoping he’s not having that day again against me,” Kohlschreiber said after his 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (6) victory.

As for Nadal, it’s clear he’s just superstar-crossed.
