REPAIRS TO THE STORAGE WATER TANKS
AT PIARCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
LONDON---On the final point of
the first set of his latest Wim-
bledon disappointment, Rafael
Nadal swung his mighty, lefty
forehand --- and whiffed, acci-
dentally whacking his right leg
with his racket.
It was a painful, embarrassing
mistake, symbolic of the sort of
day this was.
During five trips to the All Eng-
land Club from 2006-11, Nadal
reached the final every time. In
his most recent four appearances,
though, Nadal has exited early
against an unheralded, unaccom-
plished and, most importantly,
unafraid opponent ranked 100th
or worse. Yesterday, Nadal lost 7-
5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the second
round to Dustin Brown, who
needed to qualify just to enter the
"It s not the end," Nadal said.
"(It s) a sad moment for me ...
but life continues. My career, too."
Toni Nadal, Rafael s uncle and
coach, summed up the Centre
Court match this way: "He played
really bad. Bad shots. Very bad
with his forehand."
All true. But give credit to
Brown and his varied, risky and
entertaining brand of tennis, a
mix of old-school serve-and-vol-
leying, drop shots, drop volleys
and go-for-it returns.
"I had nothing to lose. If I lose
6-1, 6-2, 6-3, everyone says
Bravo, Rafa, " Brown said.
The 30-year-old Brown was
born in Germany to a Jamaican
father --- whose face is tattooed
on Brown s stomach --- and Ger-
man mother. They moved to
Jamaica when he was 12 and
returned to Europe about a decade
ago. Around that time, his parents
bought him an RV so he could
drive from tournament to tour-
Who could have imagined this
sort of triumph back then? Or,
frankly, even now?
After all, Brown is ranked
102nd, entered Thursday with a
6-11 record in 2015 and has never
been past the third round at a
Nadal, meanwhile, is a former
No. 1 and the owner of 14 major
titles, tied with Pete Sampras for
second-most behind Roger Fed-
erer s 17.
Federer joined Andy Murray
and Petra Kvitova as past Wim-
bledon champions picking up
straightforward, straight-set vic-
tories yesterday. Federer s 6-4,
6-2, 6-2 win over Sam Querrey
of the U.S. included one partic-
ularly memorable moment --- an
"You want to go over and give
him a high-five sometimes," Quer-
rey said, "but you can t do that."
Nadal used to leave opponents
feeling that way, too. Not lately.
He missed time last season with
a right wrist injury, then needed
appendix surgery, and has spoken about
After his run of five consecutive
French Open titles ended last month
with a quarterfinal loss to Novak
Djokovic, Nadal s ranking dropped to
10th, his worst in 10 years.
Now he has failed to win any of his
past four major tournaments, not even
reaching the semifinals. It s the 29-
year-old Spaniard s longest drought
since the first five Slams of his career.
Consider, too, Nadal s history at
Wimbledon. He lost to Federer in the
2006 and 2007 finals, then beat him
9-7 in the fifth set of the epic 2008
final. After missing the 2009 tourna-
ment because of injury, Nadal collected
another trophy in 2010, then lost to
Djokovic in the 2011 final.
"I don t know if I will be back to
(that) level," Nadal acknowledged.
In 2012, he lost to No. 100 Lukas
Rosol in the second round. In 2013, he
lost to No. 135 Steve Darcis in the first.
And last year, he lost to No. 144 Nick
Kyrgios in the fourth.
Like those guys, Brown played won-
derfully. His back-length dreadlocks
jumping around as he raced to the net,
Brown serve-and-volleyed on 99 of
114 service points, winning 71 of those.
He hit serves at up to 133 mph (215
"Whatever I do is to take him out
of his comfort zone," Brown said.
Most importantly, he never let up.
"I m very happy that I held it togeth-
er for the whole match," said Brown,
who also beat Nadal on grass in Ger-
many last year.
This match turned for good at 2-all
in the third set, when Nadal s pair of
double-faults handed over a
