fanatix asks the question, just who is Steve Darcis?
If you have never heard of Steve Darcis there is a good chance you’ll soon be hearing a lot about him.
The Belgian is in the cusp of causing one of the biggest upsets in recent tennis history, leading former Wimbledon champion 7-6, 7-6 in their first round match.
But who is Darcis?
The 29-year-old is currently ranked 135 in the world and has only three titles in his career, all coming in 2007 and 2008.
The right-hander turned pro in 2003 and his highest ranking was at one stage 44, which he hit on May 12, 2008.
Darcis has won $109,140 in career prize-money, a well short of Nadal’s total which is currently $55,740,464.
But the real test of star power comes in the battle of the Twitter accounts, with Nadal’s 4,561,366 slightly dwarfing his opponent’s 2,337.
But the only numbers that matter are the one’s that are currently on display at the No. 1 Court.
