9 Of The Greatest Wimbledon Upsets Of All Time
9. Jo-Wilfriend Tsonga Over Roger Federer (2011)
When Roger Federer took to the grass to play Jo-Wilfriend Tsonga last year, he had to be feeling confidant. Not only had he won the tournament five previous times, but he had also defeated Tsonga in five prior match-ups. But despite taking a two-set lead, Federer came crashing down, and Tsonga advanced, only to be beaten by Novak Djokovic.
7. Ivo Karlovic Over Lleyton Hewitt (2003)
6. Arthur Ashe Over Jimmy Connors (1975)
5. Lori McNeil Over Steffi Graf (1995)
4. Peter Doohan Over Boris Becker (1987)
3. George Bastl Over Pete Sampras (2002)
2. Kevin Curren Over John McEnroe (1985)
1. Jelena Dokic Over Martina Hingis (1999)
In 1999, Jelena Dokic was 16-years old and was ranked 129th in the world. So when she came up against top-ranked Martina Hingis in the first round of Wimbledon, no one was expecting her to win, much less win in straight sets. But somehow, that’s exactly what she did, pulling off possibly the greatest upset in the history of the tournament.
