Three-times defending champion Roger Federer ripped Tim Henman's Wimbledon dreams to shreds with a majestic 6-4 6-0 6-2 win in the second round on Wednesday.

The much-hyped battle between the world number one and the four-times Wimbledon semi-finalist turned into a one man show after Federer floored Henman with a breathtaking display of grasscourt tennis.

The home favourite had been expected to challenge Federer's record run of 42 successive victories on grass but he had no answer when the Swiss conjured outrageous winners to take 11 games on the trot.

The top seed completed Henman's 85-minute humiliation on Centre Court with his sixth ace.
