London:

Dustin Brown's fairytale Wimbledon came crashing to a halt on Saturday as the flamboyant conqueror of two-time champion Rafael Nadal slumped to defeat against Viktor Troicki in the third round.

The 30-year-old dreadlocked German lit up the tournament with his free-flowing, unorthodox serve-and-volley style when he downed Nadal on Centre Court on Thursday.

But he was beaten 6-4, 7-6 (7/3), 4-6, 6-3 by Serbian 22nd seed Troicki, who next faces either British wildcard James Ward or Canada's Vasek Pospisil for a place in the quarter-finals.
