The Top 5 Stunning Upsets in the History Of Wimbledon

1)  Steve Darcis over Rafael Nadal, 1st Round at 2013 

Wimbledon experienced a first on Monday as Rafael Nadal lost an opening-round match at a Grand Slam for the first time in his storied career, beaten by Steve Darcis of Belgium, ranked No.135 in the world.

2) Doug Flach over Andre Agassi, 1st Round, 1996

The difference between Andre Agassi and Dough Flach, coming into Wimbledon in 1996, was roughly 278. 278 places — that is, between Agassi, who was the world’s No. 3 at the time, and Flach, who was decidedly not in that tier. While this is an easily explained loss given the context of history, it marks the beginning of the decline for Agassi, who would struggle with drugs and disinterest on his way to a ranking in the high 140s by the time 1997 rolled around.

3)  Ivo Karlovic over Lleyton Hewitt, 1st Round, 2003

For only the second time in the history of the event, the top-seeded male was toppled on the first day. Lleyton Hewitt had the misfortune of running into 202nd-ranked Ivo Karlovic. The Croat's ranking may have been lowly, but his 6-foot-10 stature was certainly not. The giant Croat's blistering, laser-like serves shooting out from his oversized frame proved too difficult even for the tenacious and speedy Hewitt to withstand.

4) Jelena Dokic over Martina Hingis, 1st Round, 1999

When this match took place, Martina Hingis was the world’s highest ranked women’s tennis player, and her opponent, Jelena Dokic, was a highly touted junior who had a dad that thought she was really good, and a world ranking that wasn’t terrible (129th.) So when the final score, 6-2 and 6-0, came out, you could be forgiven for assuming it was Hingis who laid into Dokic, when in fact it was the other way around. This match would foreshadow Hingis’ eventual U.S. Open loss to a 17-year-old Serena Williams

5) Lukas Rosol over Rafael Nadal, 2nd Round, 2012

Rafael Nadal has constructed his engaging persona of humility by consistently refusing to either denigrate a beaten opponent or to indulge in shameless boasting. However, after resisting the high-quality challenge of Lukas Rosol in four sets to advance to the third round of the Wimbledon championships – two years after losing to him at the same stage – the world No1 was inclined, correctly, to describe his comeback from a set and 2-4 down as a bit special.
