Wimbledon: No. 2 Rafael Nadal Loses First Set To Robin Haase

Even though the ceremony that ended Isner-Mahut may have made it seem like this tournament had ended, there’s still a whole lot left to decide today on Day 4.

Big-serving Dutchman Robin Haase has won the first set against 2008 Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal, 7-5.

Haase was a much-touted young up-and-comer before suffering a knee injury that has kept him out for most of the last two years.

Nadal has already broken to open the second set, though, so things are looking better for the 2008 champion.
