Rafael Nadal was sent tumbling out of Wimbledon by Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios Tuesday as the Spaniard suffered another All England Club meltdown which in turn opened the title door for Roger Federer.The defeat boosted Federer's hopes of an eighth title as the Swiss star was seeded to meet Nadal in the semis.Kyrgios was the talk of the town as he became the first wildcard in 10 years to make the quarterfinals.He is also the first player ranked outside the top 100 to defeat a world number one since Andrei Olhovskiy stunned Jim Courier in the Wimbledon third round in 1992 . For Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion, it was a third successive disappointing Wimbledon, with Tuesday's loss following a first-round exit last year and a second-round defeat in 2012 .All three defeats were against players outside the top 100 . Nadal said defeat was hard to take as he only lost serve once.
