London, June 26 — After his protégé and former champion Rafael Nadal was ousted in the Wimbledon men's singles first round, his coach and uncle Toni Nadal turned into a waiter here Wednesday.

Nadal was seen handing out coffee to spectators at the All England Club.

"I cannot make my work as coach (since Rafael lost). I have no player here, so I'm a waiter now. So I serve coffee, (which) is my new work," a joking Nadal, who was accompanied by another coach, Judy Murray, mother of London Olympic champion Andy Murray, was quoted as saying by wimbledon.com.

World No.2 Rafael Nadal was taken out by Steve Darcis of Belgium in the first round Monday, causing the biggest upset of the tournament.

Move over Mo'ne Davis, there's a new girl in town.  CiCi Bellis is a few years older than Davis, of course. She plays a different sport, too, and not against boys. But the youngster absolutely set the U.S. Open on fire on Tuesday when she upset Dominika Cibulkova in the first round. That not only meant that Bellis—who is 15 years old—became the youngest player to win a match at this tournament since 1996, it also meant she had ...

Why Do Tennis Players Grunt? Because It Works

Aug 26 2014 12:02pm CDT | Source: Deadspin

Monica Seles gets the blame—at 93 decibels, her screams on the court were about as loud as a motorcycle, and started the run on grunting in tennis.

Now, all the top players ...
