Not 2000, it was 2001.
It was the fourth round, so obviously Fed had won three matches prior (beating Rochus, Malisse, and Bjorkman) at Wimbledon that year.
In 2000, he lost in the first round to Kafelnikov. In 1999 he lost in the first round to Jiri Novak. In 1998 he won the Boys Singles Chamionships.
