2013 WIMBLEDON: Federer Upset By Stakhovsky!

If the upset of Rafael Nadal on Monday in the first round was not momentous enough, it has now been eclipsed by 7-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer going out in the 2nd round to Sergiy Stakhovsky.

The score was 6-7(5) 7-6(5) 7-5 7-6(5). The loss is Federer's first in more than 9 years before the 5th round of a major tournament. His astonishing streak of 36 quarterfinals in a row ended at the most unlikely of venues, on the grass of Wimbledon to a serve and volley player.

The upset came on a day like no other in Wimbledon history. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and John Isner were forced to retire from their matches.

On the women's side Victoria Azarenka[2], Maria Sharapova[3], Caroline Wozniacki[9], Ana Ivanovic[12] and Jelena Jankovic[16] all failed to advance.
