Top seed Halep stunned by Hsieh in Wimbledon third round

Down and out: world No.1 Simona Halep has been the victim of the latest upset in the women's draw

Women’s top seed Simona Halep crashed out in the third round of Wimbledon on Saturday when she was beaten 3-6 6-4 7-5 by Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei.

The Romanian world number one, who claimd her first Grand Slam title at last month’s French Open, never got to grips with the tricky 32-year-old who battled back from 5-3 down in the deciding set to claim a stunning victory.

A weary-looking Halep ended the match with successive forehand errors.

Her defeat means only one of the top 10 seeds has reached the last 16 in the women’s draw.
