Simona Halep celebrates

Simona Halep has moved into the third round of Wimbledon after a dominant win over Saisai Zheng.

The world number one and top seed eased into the match, pinching a tightly contested first set.

However, Halep, who won her maiden Grand Slam at Roland Garros last month, was ruthless thereafter and completed a 7-5 6-0 win without dropping another game.

32-year-old Taiwanese player Su-Wei Hsieh, the world number 48, awaits for Halep in round four.

Indian Wells champion Naomi Osaka is safely through too after overcoming projected British number two Katie Boulter 6-3 6-4.
