I actually gasped.
I had seen that some unknown named Rosol had pushed Rafael Nadal to a fifth set in the second round at Wimbledon and that play had been suspended but, like everybody else in the world of tennis, I naturally expected the world number two to pull things together and wipe his opponent out in the fifth set once play resumed.
So I actually gasped when I saw that Rosol, the hundredth ranked player in the world, had beaten Nadal in that deciding set, crashing one of the top three men's players in the world out of a Major tournament in the first week for the first time in... well, at least five years.
And I couldn't believe the ill-grace with which the Spaniard apparently took his defeat, complaining to the umpire about Rosol's movements during his serve and actually bumping the guy on one of the changeovers. Now, I haven't actually seen the video so I don't know exactly what happened but that doesn't sound like Rafa to me.
At this point, I'm trying to grasp just what this stunning upset means for the rest of the men's draw at Wimbledon 2012.
You have to think Andy Murray is feeling like his path to his first Slam (and a place in history as the first Brit in forever to win at Wimby) has suddenly become much easier.
Murray was slated to meet Nadal in the semi-finals and, if he got past Rafa, to face the winner of the inevitable (or is it?) Federer-Djokovic semi-final in the title match.
Nadal's formidable shadow no longer looms over Murray's side of the draw.
Oddly, the Nadal upset is more meaningful for number five Wilfrid Tsonga than it is for the Brit. Tsonga was slated to take on Rafa in the quarters but now, if he can beat a guy named Lacko, he'll face the survivor of the intimidating Goffin/Fish matchup, then take on the winner from a pool of players named Baker, Paire, Kholschreiber and Rosol, none of whom should strike any fear into the heart of the talented Frenchman.
Murray will have to beat Baghdatis, Cilic (16), Ferrer (7) in order to meet Tsonga in the semis. It's a tougher road than Tsonga faces but I think the knowledge that he will be facing Tsonga rather than Nadal in the semis should keep Murray focused and on track.
It looks to me like we're going to see a British player at long last in the men's final at Wimbledon. And, now that Nadal is out of the way, Murray will only have to fashion one stunning upset, rather than two, in order to win the title.
