Defending champion Roger Federer has been beaten in the second round by world number 116 Sergiy Stakhovsky.

Federer, who's won the Wimbledon title seven times, won the first set on a tiebreak 6-7 but then went on to lose the next three 7-6 7-5 7-6.

The loss is Federer's earliest defeat at Wimbledon since 2002 and ends his consecutive run of making the quarter-finals in the last 36 Grand Slams.

His defeat wasn't the only shock as former Wimbledon champions Leyton Hewitt and Maria Sharapova were beaten in their second round matches.
