Nadal loss sends shockwaves round Wimbledon

There are still threats floating in the draw, however, and Germany's 18th seed Sabine Lisicki, runner-up two years ago and with a great Wimbledon record, is one of them.

Lisicki lost the first set American Christina McHale and was broken in the opening game of the second but regrouped impressively and by the end was pounding down a succession of powerful winners en route to a 2-6 7-5 6-1 victory.

However, there will be little room for her accomplishments in Germany's sports pages on Friday as the country's newest, and most unlikely, tennis hero Brown will be hogging all the headlines.
