Huge upset potential here. Grass is Darcis' best surface, and he hits great slices and forehands.

Just kidding. He'll probably choke

To be able to choke you have to be in a winning position in the first place so I think Darcis won't even have the opportunity to do so

Re: WWW ? Wimbledon R1 : Rafael Nadal - Steve Darcis

Considering that for the first time since 2003 Rafa did not play a warm-up grass tournament, he might need some time to get into rhythm.

Hoping for a straight set win, but I would not be surprised if Darcis wins a set.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!
