London - Germany's Dustin Brown has caused the upset of Wimbledon 2015 by demolishing Rafael Nadal on the Centre Court.

Brown, the world's 102-ranked player, beat Nadal 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Brown used an aggressive serve-and-volley style to frustrate the two-time champion.

Nadal lost in the second round in 2012, first round in 2013 and fourth round in 2014.

Brown has only won back-to-back matches on the ATP tour once this year, reaching the quarter-finals in Doha.
