Wimbledon 2012: Tomas Berdych suffers shock loss to Ernests Gulbis
was the highest ranked player to bow out on the opening day after the No6 seed lost in straight sets to Ernests Gulbis.
Gulbis, ranked 87, served 30 aces to win 7-6, 7-6, 7-6, his first win at a grand slam since the 2011 US Open.
Another seed to lose was John Isner, who was beaten by Alejandro Falla of Colombia 6-4, 6-7, 3-6, 7-6, 7-5, despite serving 31 aces during the match. The No11 seed's defeat ruled out a match against Nicolas Mahut for a third year in a row.
Having beaten the Frenchman in the longest match in history in 2010, Isner beat Mahut again last year in the first round, and was slated to meet him in the second round here.
