Wimbledon 2012 Scores: Rafael Nadal Out After Shocking Loss To Lukas Rosol

Rafael Nadal has been eliminated in the second round at Wimbledon by little-known, big-serving Czech Lukas Rosol. Nadal won the first set in a tiebreak, but his struggle to win points on Rosol's first serve and to easily put him away in the tiebreak was a sign of things to come. Rosol's serve dipped a bit in the fourth set, but was otherwise spectacular in his 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 victory.

Rosol tallied 22 aces in the match, with 11 of them coming in the decisive third set. Nadal wasn't poor by any means, racking up 19 aces himself to go along with a low total of 16 unforced errors for a five-set match, but couldn't match Rosol's power as he played the match of his life. Rosol hit an incredible 65 winners to Nadal's 41 and won 83 percent of points on his first serve.
