Roger Federer's loss costs bettor $130,000
A bettor risked 100,000 Euros to win a mere 1,000 on Roger Federer winning his second-round match at Wimbledon. Oops!
When seven-time Wimbledon champ Roger Federer was ousted in the second round on Wednesday, one bettor must have been sick.
Federer’s stunning loss cost the bettor 100,000 Euros, or around $130,000. He only would have won $1,303 had Federer prevailed as expected.

Sergiy Stakhovsky’s four-set win -- 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5), 7-5, 7-6 (5) -- marked Federer’s earliest Grand Slam exit in a decade.
