The 11 men who have beaten Roger Federer at Wimbledon - in pictures

As the No 2 seed prepares for his tilt at a ninth SW19 title, here is a look at the players who can boast of a victory in the past over the Swiss at the grand slam tournament

It is 20 years since Roger Federer first took part at Wimbledon at the age of 17.

To say it has gone well for the Swiss player since then would be something of an understatement.

Eight titles, 11 appearances in the final in total, and 16 times making it to the last eight at minimum over two decades at SW19.

He has won 95 of his 107 matches at the grand slam event and is the most successful male competitor in the competition's history.

Only 11 players since 1999 can claim to have triumphed over Federer at the only grass court major on the calendar.

It began with Jiri Novak and Kevin Anderson knocked him out at the quarter-finals stage last year.

As the world No 3, who is second seed this year, prepares for his bid to win the event for a ninth time here is a look, in the gallery above, at the men who have beaten Federer at Wimbledon and how they did it.
