Down 3-4 and a break in the third, Rafa let the world in on his secret.

Nadal's movement was so off. He was shanking an unusual amount of shots. There must be something wrong with his knees.

Epic match from Darcis, pure grass lecture.

Nadal was horrible, running away too much from his backhand. Something you simply can't do on grass.

Did this really happen!?  Oh My God.. :scared:

A THREAD I STARTED GOT STICKIED!!  :king:

Oh and Nadal lost in straights to Darcis in the first round. Man he needs new knees. This is a real shocker actually, more-so than his loss to Rosol last year.

Fed has to take care of his matches. It doesn't help him at all if he loses in the next few rounds, so he'll have to take care of his business. 

Oh, and I was watching the 'pre-interviews' and McEnroe must have jinxed Nadal because he said he would put Nadal as the "Greatest of all times right now"...then Nadal promptly goes out and loses.  I hope McEnroe doesn't say anything about Roger! :innocent:

Nadal has made the finals of all 9 tournaments he played this year, winning 7 and his only significant loss being to Novak in Monte Carlo. If he complains about his knees again.. shame on him. You don't go from making the finals and mostly winning 9 tournaments up until 2 weeks before Wimbledon and lose the first round due to injury. Blame it on lack of match-play on grass and an excellent day for a 135th ranked journey man.. ANYTHING BUT THE DAMN KNEES. He has knee issues and he's won freak 10+ Grand Slams with them.

A Shocker.

Nadal did not play his best. But lets give kudos to Steve who somehow managed to keep his nerve and win very tough two tie breaks and serve out in the third set.

Note: Hope Nadal did not make any knee excuse after just winning his 8 th Rolland Garros titles. He simply lost to a better player today.
