WIMBLEDON – Rafael Nadal was upset by 102nd-ranked Dustin Brown and once again found himself making an early exit at the All England Club.

Nadal was in trouble early against  Brown, going down two sets to one in their second-round match on Centre Court.

Brown led 7-5, 3-6, 6-4 at that point and was using an aggressive serve-and-volley style to frustrate the two-time champion. Nadal was up a break in the first set. Nadal lost in the second round in 2012, first round in 2013 and fourth round last year.

Brown has only won back-to-back matches on the ATP tour once this year, reaching the quarterfinals in Doha. But the German used an eclectic mix of shot-making that is drawing loud cheers from the Centre Court crowd — and gave Nadal all he can handle.
