The game is changing. Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of the US Open by Fabio Fognini in the third round.
Nadal, 29, who has 14 grand slam titles under his belt, won the first two rounds, but lost the next three 3-6 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4.
This will be the first time Nadal lost a match after being two sets up. And what a comeback for Fognini.
“I can’t describe how happy I am,” said Fognini. “It was very tough. To do it against Rafa, two sets down. It was an incredible match.”
