Thomas Vorm says:

Rugby World Cup 2015 Japan vs South Africa should be higher on the list. It was the GREATEST upset of all time for rugby

Mathew Hayman winning the 2016 Paris-Roubaix, outsprinting Tom Boonen on the velodrome…

Henric Häggqvist says:

Söderling was not "relatively unknown" in the tennis world by 2009. He was ranked top-20 already in 2008. Sure, it was a great upset as it was Nadal's first loss in the French Open, but it does not belong on this list. In history I would for instance rank the US win over England in the 1950 football World Cup as a bigger upset, but it was only an honorable mention here.

L. B. says:

The Serena Williams upset was the greatest in sports history

SNS MD says:
