World tennis No.3 Rafael Nadal has been sensationally knocked out of the Australian Open in straight sets by Czech Tomas Berdych.
Berdych won the quarter-final game 6-2, 6-0, 7-6 in the biggest upset of the tournament so far.
In their previous 21 matches Nadal had beaten the big-serving Berdych 18 times – and hadn’t lost to him in eight years.
Nadal was runner-up in the Australian Open final last year to Stan Wawrinka.
