Muller stuns Nadal in marathon Wimbledon classic

Nadal must beware Luxembourg lefty Muller

Nope, instead, most of you are probably only here because you want to see Rafael Nadal - one of the finest players of his generation and a Wimbledon champions in 2008 and 2010 - crack his head on a doorframe. I did twice, in the first and in the second.

"I haven't realised what's happen".

"It is more hard when you play against a player like him that you don't have a lot of rhythm", said Nadal, who was undone by Muller at Wimbledon 12 years ago.

The fifth set went with serve until Muller managed to secure the vital break to take the contest on his fifth match point 6-3 6-4 3-6 4-6 15-13. "Actually, he was a little better than me on a few balls". He arrived at the All England Club coming off his record 10th French Open championship, and 15th major trophy overall, and seemed primed to be a factor again at the grass-court tournament.

It means Djokovic and Mannarino will start their fourth-round match on the same day as the women's quarterfinal matches.

"Tired", was 34-year-old Muller's response after the thrilling encounter, which had the knock-on effect of pushing Novak Djokovic's last 16 match against Adrian Mannarino back to Tuesday.

But that duo played on and on, past 8 p.m., when the descending sun's reflection off a piece of the arena bothered Nadal so much that he held up action and chair umpire Ali Nili asked spectators to stand in the way and block the rays. That cost me two sets against in the score. I did really well in the first two sets then Rafa stepped it up and in the end it was just a big battle.

Nadal drew on all his experience to dig deep to draw level, only to find himself facing two match points at 4-5 in the decider against an equally resolute opponent.
