Wimbledon 2014 Day 8 Results: Nick Kyrgios emerges victorious; Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova crash out

Wimbedon Day 8 Results

The Day Eight of the Wimbledon Championships 2014 saw a lot of action and drama with star names like men’s singles second seed Rafael Nadal and tennis pin-up girl Maria Sharapova crashing out of the tournament. But the day would be remembered for the emergence of new star in form of young teenager for Oz land Nick Kyrgios. The 19-year-old produced the match of the tournament as he dispatched 2008 and 2010 Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal in four sets.

The women’s singles continued to see the top seeds wobbling and the latest name added to the victims list was fifth seed Maria Sharapova. She was removed by German player Angelique Kerber in three sets. Maria’s dream of winning back to back French Open and Wimbledon title squandered after a wonderful and determined game by Kerber.
