A Backhanded Compliment?

This is developed from a forum post I read online.

Thursday night, Eleven time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal lost to 100th ranked Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic in the second round at Wimbledon. Some call it the biggest upset in tennis history, but I think they’re missing the real story.

Here is Bob’s addition:
