#Wimbledon 2015: Dustin Brown shocks Rafa

Once again, the Spanish two-time Wimbledon champ has fallen short in London, as tournament qualifier Dustin Brown upsets him 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4. Nadal has now failed to reach the QF’s since 2011. Germany’s Dustin Brown (aka @DreddyTennis on twitter) is no newcomer to tennis.

He’s been on the circuit for years, a road warrior in  Topspin when we first met him in Newport, RI, then Hydrogen, and now Under Armour. (ESPN reporter Darren Rovell says he is likely sponsored only in merchandise by UA.)

If the man isn’t sponsored by all he surrounds himself with –he’s been in sleeveless shirts and wearing Beats since before 2011 –he will be in short order. Under Armour should be very happy with the Wimbledon results of Brown, Sloane Stephens, and Andy Murray.

  1. Rafa you played great my boy. Brown, however, at age 30 played the best game of his most unsuccessful Tennis career … like he had demons in him? As an old lady of nearly 80 years, I will bet London to a brick that the rest of the year will be a fantastic one for you. You are a Champion n a Gentleman n your family, friends n fans are all proud of you. I think John Mac. or the other commentator said … words to the effect “throw your racquet in frustration Rafa” n then John Mac said “but Rafa wouldn’t do that”. You are a Winner in every way Rafa. Been there, done that. Now let them play Catch Up, except for Roger who also is a Legend like you in your Era. Vamos Rafa. Have fun. Love your Aussie Abuela. xox
