There will be no “Rafa Slam” after all.

Spanish star Rafael Nadal lost his bid for a fourth consecutive tennis Grand Slam title yesterday, dropping a 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 match to countryman David Ferrer in the Australian Open quarterfinals.

The Wimbledon, French Open and U.S. Open champion seemed to be nursing an injury during the match.

“This is a difficult day for me,” Nadal said. “Today I can’t do more than what I did. He played at a very high level.”

Ferrer, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are left on the men’s side of the draw.
