Nadal suffered fresh Wimbledon misery on Monday as the two-time
champion crashed to a stunning 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 15-13 fourth round
defeat against Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller.
Just weeks after
winning his 10th French Open title, Nadal was condemned to his fifth
exit before the quarter-finals in his last five visits to Wimbledon.
“It was not my best match against a very uncomfortable opponent,” said Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion.
