Wild Day At Wimbledon: Nadal, Sharapova, And The Williams Sisters Gone

((HT: Wimbledon/Shane B's Vine))

First, Maria Sharapova got bumped out in three sets by Angeline Kerber. The 19-year-old Aussie Nick Kyrgios has taken another huge, ranked player down in Rafa Nadal.

After saving 9 match points in his win over Richard Gasquet, Kyrgios took out the 2-time champ in four sets: 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3. He hit 37 aces and he's the first to get to the quarters in his tourney debut in a decade.

Obviously, Kyrgios, the 144th-ranked player in the world won't forget this moment at the All England Club

And, then, a very wobbly Venus Williams was encouraged to withdraw her sister-pairing in women's doubles

She was diagnosed with a viral illness.
