Hsieh stunned at ‘amazing’ win over Halep

Rafael Nadal Wimbledon

Halep essentially wilted after leading 5-2 in the third set.

However, Hsieh's unpredictable offense and never-say-die attitude paid dividends as she upset the world No. 1 to secure a 3-6 6-4 7-5 victory, despite presenting her opponent with 23 break-point chances.

Hiseh recovered from a 5-3 deficit and a match point in the 10th game to regain parity before she consolidated a break of serve with a tense hold to book a fourth-round meeting with Dominika Cibulkova, who defeated 15th seed Elise Mertens 6-2 6-2.

Nadal reached the last 16 for the eighth time, making sure of keeping the world number one ranking. "I am just happy to be in the fourth round again".

One day, though? " More than anything else, I just don't feel that pressure and that rush", Kennedy said. He again referred to Warren of MA as "Pocahontas" to ridicule her claims of Native American ancestry.


Halep is the first No. 1 seed to fail to reach the round of 16 at Wimbledon since Serena Williams in 2014.

Nadal, with Spain out of the World Cup, was heading to watch England play Sweden.

"It's my first win against a world number one", said 26-year-old Hsieh. He had obviously captured the national mood.

"I'll go and watch some football - England, it's coming home or not?" he said in reference to a football song which is now being sung, hummed and whistled on nearly every street and in every pub.

The biggest threat to Nadal reaching the last four could well be fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro, who is through to the fourth round for the first time since 2013 after a 6-4 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 victory over Frenchman Benoit Paire.

Other round-of-16 matchups on the top half of the draw: No. 12 seed Ostapenko against 50th-ranked Aliaksandra Sasnovich, who stunned two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in the first round; No. 14 Daria Kasatkina against 47th-ranked Alison Van Uytvanck, who beat defending champ Muguruza in the second round; and No. 11 Kerber against 56th-ranked Belinda Bencic, who defeated No 6 Caroline Garcia in the first round.

Djokovic was furious when he was denied a break of serve in the seventh game of the fourth set on Centre Court when the ball bounced twice before Edmund hit what was ruled a victor.

Djokovic plays Russian world number 40 Karen Khachanov for a place in the quarter-finals on Monday.

Three-time victor Novak Djokovic made the last 16 of a Slam for the 44th time with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Kyle Edmund, the last remaining Briton.

Danilo ruled out for the rest of the World Cup
The five-time winners were fancied to add another World Cup to their collection, having qualified impressively before easing into the last eight.
