RafaHow many times will he force his body like that?When he's not ready,he should stay home

Darcis played the best match in his entire tennis career,at the age of 29,let's hope he doesn't prove to be a one match wonders!Congrats.

Rafa

Ssshhh..........

Disgusting Wimbledon interviewer asking Darcis if he targeted Nadal's knee.

Re: Wimbledon R1: Steve Darcis def. [5] Rafael Nadal 7-6 (4) 7-6 (8) 6-4

what a truly great display of grass court tennis from Steve.

I never thought Nadal was in danger of an upset, but I said the same about Rosol last year.

But for now, bask in the glory Stevie lad

A routine win for the Belgian He played a decent match, hit some big forehands, and was clutch at net.

A good performance from the inexperienced Spaniard. He will have to work on his grasscourt skills though if he wants to be a top te4nnis player in the coming years.

If this was a clay tournament Nadal would have breezed through.

Epic result. So many people to dedicate this result to... so little time...

"Nadal the GOAT will win Wimbledon"

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Nadal losing in straigths at the 1st round of Wimbledon and I'm not even feeling that many emotions, it either tells you a lot abotu Nadal on fast grass of me losing interest in tennis after all slow-HC/clay BS we've had.

Actual cannibal

Great stuff from Darcis. Incredible court coverage throughout.


Still the damage has been done, he has won it twice. But at least we have this comedic moments brought to us by nadal.
