Two-time champion Rafael Nadal lost in the fourth round of Wimbledon to 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios of Australia 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3 Tuesday.

The 144th-ranked Kyrgios, a wild-card entry, hit 37 aces and delivered a between-the-legs winner on one point. He is the first man to get to the quarterfinals in his Wimbledon debut in 10 years.

He's also the first player ranked outside the top 100 to beat the No. 1 man since No. 193 Andrei Olhovskiy defeated Jim Courier at Wimbledon in 1992.

Nadal has appeared in five finals at the All England Club. But he lost in the second round in 2012 and the first round in 2013.
