Rafael Nadal suffered a shock first-round exit from the Wimbledon warmup event at Queen's Club as the Spanish star was beaten 6-3, 6-7 (6/8), 6-4 by unheralded Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov Tuesday.Dolgopolov came into the tournament on a three-match losing streak, but he had won his last meeting with Nadal – at Indian Wells last year – and continued to dominate from the baseline as he closed out the set.In a dramatic second set tie-break, a blistering forehand at 5-5 gave Dolgopolov a match point, but Nadal saved it with a nerveless serve.There was more frustration for Nadal at 4-4 when he wasted three break points and that proved the decisive moment when Dolgopolov unloaded a searing winner on match point in the next game to steal a sensational victory.
