Who is Dustin Brown?

I love watching tennis.  So while at work I saw on Twitter that one of my favorite tennis players Rafael Nadal lost to some guy named Dustin Brown at Wimbledon.  I’m like who?  Never heard of him.  Talk about an upset.  The Tennis Channel will be showing the match tonight.  I hope I can stay up to watch.



Rafa hasn’t been doing too well lately. Ranked 102nd in the world, Dustin defeated Rafa 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4 to reach the third round.

Rafael Nadal was knocked out of Wimbledon in the first week for the third time in four years, bamboozled by the wild but often brilliant game of the qualifier Dustin Brown, a man who spent three years living in a camper van as he travelled Europe trying to earn a living. The German hit numerous drop shots, some unbelievable returns and generally kept the 10th seed off balance and out of kilter, clinching a 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory.

Born in Germany but raised in Jamaica before switching his nationality back to that of his native land in 2010, the dreadlocked, athletic Brown has the kind of unorthodox game that can infuriate many a better player, causing them to lose rhythm.

Congrats to Dustin!!

Next up is Viktor Troicki of Serbia on Saturday.
