London: Sergiy Stakhovsky's Wimbledon fairytale came to an abrupt end as Roger Federer's conquerer slumped to a 6-2, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3 defeat against Austria's Jurgen Melzer in the third round on Friday.

Stakhovsky had caused one of the biggest upsets in the history of the All England Club when the world number 116 defeated reigning champion Federer on Centre Court on Wednesday.

It was Federer's earliest exit from a Grand Slam for a decade and ended the seven-time Wimbledon champion's incredible run of 36 successive quarter-final appearances at the majors.
