Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of Wimbledon by Germany’s Dustin Brown.

The world No. 102 defeated the tenth seed 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4 to reach the third round of Wimbledon. It is the second time Brown will be defeating Nadal on grass-court following his second round win over the then-world No. 1 at the Gerry Weber Open last year.

Nadal has failed to advance beyond the fourth round at the All England club in his last two appearances, losing to players ranked between 100-150 on the ATP leaderboard- Nick Kyrgios (144) in the last 16 in 2014 and Lukas Rosol (100) in the third round the previous year.

On Thursday, the Spaniard got off well against the 33-year-old, breaking serves in the third game, but Brown returned on equal footing in the sixth game before finishing it off with another break.

He moves one break up at 3-2 in the third set and broke again to open the fourth set, at whose point Nadal completely lost every tactics in putting every piece of the puzzle together.

Up next for Brown is No. 22 seed Victor Troicki, who saw off Great Britain’s Aljaz Bedene 6-4 3-6 6-2 6-4. Troicki was a losing finalist to Nadal earlier this month in Stuttgart.

Brown also reached the last 32 in 2013, when he was knocked out by Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
