The Czech tennis player and world number 100 Lukas Rosol provided one of the biggest upsets in Grand Slam history when he knocked out Rafael Nadal at Wimbeldon on Friday.

After four sets the game was tied but Lukas Rosol then shocked the crowd with an array of stunning shots to send the Spaniard out.

After four sets the game had to be paused for half an hour as officials decided to close the roof of the arena.

The players returned to play when the roof was on and Rosol stunned Nadal and stormed into the third round.

Rosol was almost speechless about his performance and says he hopes to reproduce his form in the next round.
