Federer Loses in Second Round

Just two days after Rafael Nadal fell in the first round at Wimbledon, Roger Federer lost his second-round match Wednesday to Ukrainian Serhiy Stakhovsky. Three of the match's four sets ended in tiebreaks, leading to a final tally of 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (5-7), 5-7, 6-7 (5-7). Federer, the defending Wimbledon champion, is ranked No. 3 on the ATP tour, while Stakhovsky is all the way down at 116. Federer has won Wimbledon seven times, and a win this year would have set a record for all-time victories in the tournament.
