Before today, Roger Federer had gone 36 Grand Slams reaching the quarter-finals or better and also not been beaten by a player ranked outside the top 100 since 2005.
Those records ended when Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky knocked the defending and seven-time Wimbledon champion out of his favourite tournament this evening.
Read how one of the biggest upsets of all time unfolded in our game-by-game updates below.
4.57pmIt's hardly been the smoothest of days at SW19 so far but one man full of that is defending champion Roger Federer.
4.58pmThe Swiss maestro, seeded three at this year's Championships, is up against Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky this afternoon and you'd be a foolish man to bet against Mr Federer today.
5.01pmHe was in scintillating form in the first round against Victor Hanescu, wrapping up the straight-set victory in just 68 minutes. Which is super, super quick for a three-set game.
5.04pmIf you do fancy a flutter on Federer's opponent today you can get big odds of about 25/1.
5.08pmWHO? Before you do, you might want to know a little more about the Ukrainian. He is 27 years old and 6'4" tall and currently ranked 98 in the world. His highest-ever ranking was 31 back in September 2010 and he hasn't never got any further than the second round at the All England Club.
5.10pmThe pair are now out on court and going through the warm-up routine. The sun is out in SW19 and Centre Court is looking resplendent.
5.13pmH2H: The pair have met just once before, in Dubai in 2011 and Federer came out on top 6-3 6-4.
5.14pmThe umpire is Mohamed El Jennati from Morocco.
5.14pmOver on No. 1 Court, the biggest threat in Federer's half of the draw, Andy Murray, has just taken the second set against Lu Yen-Hsun.
5.16pmIt'll be Federer to serve first on Centre and he loses the first point as Stakhovsky goes for a drop shot straight away and gets the better of the Swiss at the net.
Stakhovsky *0-1 FedererFour straight points for Federer after that early setback. Pleasant start for the defending champion.
5.18pmConfident start for Stakhovsky on serve as he successfully serves and volleys straight away.
5.19pmEarly entertainment on Centre as Stakhovsky pulls off the through-the-legs 'hot dog' shot but Federer is there to win the point.
5.32pmAnd now Stakhovsky has Federer at 30-30 as the Swiss can't quite stretch far enough to direct a volley in.
5.32pmThe Swiss moves 40-30 ahead with a clever backhand back behind Stakhovsky but then wildly hits a drive volley out and we're at deuce for the first time in the match.
Stakhovsky *3-4 FedererA dinked volley and overhit return from Stakhovskky mean that we remain on serve in the opening set.
5.35pmOver on No. 2 Court and there's a real screechathon going on between Larcher de Brito and Sharapova. The Portuguese, ranked 131 remember, is currently serving for the match against the third seed. Follow here.
Stakhovsky 4-4* Federer"Game Stakhovsky," as the Ukrainian smashes a short forehand right down the middle with Federer guessing left.
5.37pmOver on No. 2 and Sharapova has crashed out to Larcher de Brito! Incredible stuff from the world number 131. @Infostrada2016 tells us on Twitter: "For the first time at a Grand Slam in Open era (women's singles) at least 2 of the top three seeds fail to reach the third round."
5.38pmStakhovsky looking menacing at 15-30 on Centre but Federer with a big serve to bring it back to 30-30.
5.39pmBREAK POINT Stakhovsky as Federer slices wide.
Stakhovsky *4-5 FedererFederer just about holds on under intense pressure there. It's now down to Stakhovsky to hold his nerve as he's serving to stay in the set.
5.42pmGood start to the game for Fed as he gets the better of Stakhovsky with the Ukrainian looking to finish the point off at the net.
5.43pmBrilliant defence from Federer as he tracks down a Stakhovsky volley and then plonks a lob on the baseline that the Ukrainian can only hit out. 15-30.
5.45pmWe're at deuce now as Stakhovsky looks to serve and volley at deuce but Federer coolly slices up the line and out of reach.
Stakhovsky 5-5* FedererGood stuff from Stakhovsky as he outhits Federer from the baseline to yet again level the set.
5.47pmHe's doing more than holding his own here, Stakhovsky. The Ukrainian moves 0-30 ahead after a couple of Federer mishits.
5.48pmFederer pulls it back to 30-30 but Stakhovsky now has a BREAK POINT as his return finds the corner and Federer can only flick out.
5.49pm"AAAAH!" screams Stakhovsky as he does brilliantly to earn the upper hand but volleys long with a huge chance to move ahead.
Stakhovsky *5-6 FedererMassive, massive chance to break goes begging for Stakhovsky as an ace and then netted Stakhovsky drop shot sees Federer hold. He now has to regain focus on serve to take us to a tie-break.
5.52pm15-15 on Stakhovsky's serve as Federer blasts a high lob out of the sky just inside the baseline.
6.12pmRemarkable shot from Federer. The high backhand smash is regarded as one of the toughest to play in tennis and the Swiss has just produced an incredible one from a tough Stakhovsky lob.
Stakhovsky 6-7 *2-2 FedererThe 31-year-old holds serve with another magnificent shot. This time it's a backhand volley on the run that lands right in the corner. Stakhovsky thinks about challenging but he knows it's in and is just amazed.
6.14pmMore wonderful tennis as Federer somehow gets to Stakhovsky's drop shot and pokes it up the line into the corner. Stakhovsky manages to sprint back and loop the ball back into play but Federer emerges from behind the umpire's chair to smash it away.
Stakhovsky 6-7 3-2* FedererA weak forehand from Federer barely gets halfway up the net and Stakhovsky again moves ahead in the second. The defending champion has a real challenge on his hands here.
6.19pmBBC Sport's John McEnroe describes today as "the craziest day he's ever seen at Wimbledon". Wow.
6.20pmMore pressure from Stakhovsky on the Federer serve. We're at deuce.
Stakhovsky 6-7 *4-4 FedererFederer does the same. We've now been playing longer - one hour, 12 minutes - than it took Federer to win his first-round match and we're only halfway through the second set.
6.26pmSplendid tennis all round as first Stakhovsky pulls off an outrageous side-spin stop volley before Federer warns him about serving and volleying with a wicked return winner down the line.
Stakhovsky 6-7 5-4* FedererIncredibly, Federer is yet to have a break point on the Stakhovsky serve. Once more the Ukrainian holds strong as Federer's backhand return doesn't curl enough to drop in.
Stakhovsky 6-7 *5-5 FedererA break of serve would hand Stakhovsky the set but Federer holds to love, not offering the Ukrainian the slighest glimpse.
6.32pmTwo brilliant returns from Federer and he's up 15-30 on the Stakhovsky serve. Nervy times for the underdog.
6.32pmAnd now Federer's first BREAK POINTS of the match as another fine return to too hot to handle.
7.35pmThe first real show of emotion in a while from Federer as he finds the line at 30-30 to set up game point.
7.35pmStakhovsky answers with some big hitting of his own, taking us to deuce with a fine crosscourt backhand.
7.36pmBREAK POINT for the Ukrainian as Federer's forehand lets him down. Surely not?
Stakhovsky 6-7 7-6 7-5 *2-1 FedererBREAK! He's got it! Federer crashes his favourite out-wide serve inside the box but Stakhovsky puts it back in play and Federer's volley is tentative. Stakhovsky looks for the pass up the line and although Federer gets there his backhand volley isn't over the net.
7.40pmIf the unthinkable does happen here then one man who will be very happy is Andy Murray. He will have lost the other seeds in the top 10 in his half of the draw before the third round! Unbelievable.
7.41pmThat's Federer (3), Nadal (5), Tsonga (6) and Cilic (10).
7.41pmFederer's not going away just yet though, he has TWO BREAK-BACK POINTS.
7.42pmThe first is saved with some dogged work at the net from Stakhovsky...
7.42pmThe second goes by as well as Federer shoots long with a forehand. He's missed so many of those today.
7.43pmFederer with a stunning backhand slice at advantage down and we're back to deuce.
Stakhovsky 6-7 7-6 7-5 4-4* FedererThat's nasty! Federer swipes a backhand drive-volley straight at Stakhovsky's face. The ball is travelling at 96mph but the Ukrainian does well to duck out of the way. Most players would apologise but Federer stares down his opponent. Mean, mean stuff from the man who is supposed to be one of the nicest gents in the game.
Stakhovsky 6-7 7-6 7-5 *4-5 FedererA hold to 15 for the Fed Express and he's now within a game of taking us into a fifth set. Can Stakhovsky hold his nerve? There must be so much going through his head at this change of ends.
Stakhovsky 6-7 7-6 7-5 *5-6 FedererDelicious angle on Federer's in-to-out forehand at 40-15 and he again moves within a game of the fourth. Stakhovsky's forehand is waning a little and Federer may start to target it more.
8.06pmTremendous depth from both men before Stakhovsky just pushes his forehand a little too far and then slips over. The Ukrainian stays down for a few seconds but it's just to grab a breather, he's fine. 15-15.
8.08pmIt's SET POINT FEDERER as Stakhovsky's half-volley doesn't make it over the tape.
8.08pmBRILLIANT from Stakhovsky as he approaches the net and manages to win the battle.
8.16pmWhat an incredible victory for the Ukrainian. Federer had the serve to pull it back to 6-6 but hit wide with a simple backhand. His record of reaching the quarter-final of Grand Slams ends at 36.
8.18pmWe haven't reached the third round and already Federer, Nadal and Tsonga are out. All three men were in Andy Murray's half of the draw so the door really is wide open for the Scot to reach the final.
8.20pmFederer's bid for a record eighth Wimbledon crown is over. Yes, he didn't play his best today but credit to Stakhovsky, what a performance.
8.21pmLISTEN TO THIS STAT! Total points won: Stakhovsky 162, Federer 161. Shows just how close this game was.
8.23pmStakhovsky tells BBC Sport that he is in "disbelief".
