Lawn Tennis: Dustin Dust Off Nadal!!!

30 years old Dustin Brown, who is ranked 102 on the ATP ranking, yesterday beat two time former Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal in four sets 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
This win would be Brown second win over Nadal making him the second player to have a 100% win record over Nadal having played more than once he leads 2-0.
Now I am sure you want to know how this player who isn't ranked among the top ten tennis players in world was able to beat Nadal, well take a look.

Brown plays an amazingly attacking style of tennis coming to net often, he utilizes his agility to take Nadal away from the baseline where he loves to dominate. The following stats shows how Brown won his serve and volley approach over Nadal. 
In the first set Brown had 74% 14/19
Second Set was 59% 19/32
Third set, 71% 20/28
And the fourth set ended 90% 18/20.

Dustin who could have represented Britain through a grandmother on his father's side had this to say after the match, “It's easy for me to play my game against someone like him because I have nothing to lose”.
