Shocking Wimbledon loss for Roger Federer

LONDON — Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer was stunned by Sergiy Stakhovsky in the second round at the All England Club on Wednesday, his earliest loss in a Grand Slam tournament in 10 years.

The 27-year-old Ukrainian, a 116th-ranked qualifier, outplayed Federer, serving and volleying his way to a 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), 7-5, 7-6 (7-5) victory that stands out as one of the sport’s biggest upsets.
