Nadal Crashes out of U.S. Open

World number eight and two-time winner Rafael Nadal was bundled out of the US Open after losing a five-set, third-round thriller to Italian Fabio Fognini at Flushing Meadows.

Nadal, the winner of 14 Grand Slam titles, won the first two sets, but lost the next three as he was beaten 3-6 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4.

It is another poor result for the 29-year-old, who lost to Dustin Brown in the second round at Wimbledon.

World number 32 Fognini, 28, will face another Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in round four.
