An extremely unlikely opponent, 30-year-old Italian Andreas Seppi, took out Roger Federer, the 17-time Slam champion, leaving the tennis world stunned.
It was 2001 the last time Roger Federer was bounced in the third round of the Australian Open, and, at the time he was a talented, yet erratic, 19-year-old. Soon after, he soared to a period of almost continuous excellence that stretches all the way. That remarkable streak was snapped by an extremely unlikely opponent. 30-year-old Italian Andreas Seppi took out the 17-time Slam champion 6-4, 7-6(5), 4-6, 7-6(5), leaving the tennis world rather stunned.
