* THIS IS COPIED FROM YAHOO! NEWS.
Former champion Maria Sharapova has been ousted in the second round at Wimbledon by 154th-ranked Alla Kudryavtseva.
Kudryavtseva recovered an early break in the second set to beat the 2004 champion 6-2, 6-4 on Court 1 on Thursday.
It was Sharapova's earliest exit from a Grand Slam event since her first full season on the circuit in 2003. Since her breakthrough at Wimbledon in '04, Sharapova has added major titles at the 2006 U.S. Open and the last Australian Open.
Kudryavtseva, 20, has never won a WTA Tour title and was playing only her 10th Grand Slam match.
Crazy tennis news huh?
*It wasn't only Sharapova who suffered the upset, but fellow Americans Andy Roddick and James Blake as well. Daniela Hantuchova joined them as well.
