World number one Roger Federer suffered a stunning 7-5, 6-2 defeat by Argentine Guillermo Canas in the Pacific Life Open second round played in Indian Wells of California on Sunday.

Federer, seeking his fourth title in a row at the Indian Wells Masters Series tournament, received treatment for blisters at the end of the first set and looked sluggish throughout as his 41-match winning streak was ended by the world number 60.

The Swiss ten-times grand slam champion, whose last defeat was inflicted by Briton Andy Murray in Cincinnati in August, was hoping to break the professional era record of 46 successive wins set by Argentine Guillermo Vilas.

Federer celebrated his 161st consecutive week as world number one last month, breaking the 30-year-old record of American Jimmy Connors.

Canas outplayed Federer from the baseline, never allowing the top seed to control the center of the court and sealing victory with a powerful inside out forehand.

Canas, who achieved his career-high ranking of eighth in 2005, returned to the tour last September after serving a 15-month suspension for a doping offence.

Murray eased past South African Wesley Moodie 6-3, 6-3 to reach the third round.

Number eight seed Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia also progressed but was made to work hard by Colombia's Alejandro Falla before scraping through 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.

Number 11 seed Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic was not so lucky as he lost 7-6, 6-4 to American journeyman Michael Russell.

Seventh seed Tommy Robredo of Spain lost to Gilles Simon of France 6-7, 6-3, 6-0, and number 17 Marcos Baghdatis of Cyrpus went down 7-5, 7-5 to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain.

Fifth seed Fernando Gonzalez of Chile and number 10 David Nalbandian advanced to the third round with three-set victories over Canadian Frank Dancevic and German Philipp Kohlschreiber respectively.
