Simona Halep the latest seed to be dumped out of Wimbledon 2018
The shocks continue in the women’s draw at Wimbledon 2018 with Simona Halep sent packing by Hsieh Su-wei.
World No 1 Halep looked set for an easy afternoon after she won the opening set, but the Taiwanese player levelled it up by winning the second set.
Again the Romanian appeared to be in control as she built a 5-2 lead and had a match point 5-4, but Su-wei stormed back to win 3-6, 6-4, 7-5.
A *very* special moment

Su-wei will face Dominika Cibulkova in the last 16 after the Slovak upset 16th seed Elise Mertens 6-2, 6-2.
Former French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko had no problems during her clash against Vitalia Diatchenko as she bagelled the Russian in the opening set and then eased across the finish line with a 6-0, 6-4 victory.
The 14th seeded Daria Kasatkina was also too good for Ashleigh Barty with the Russian winning 7-5, 6-3 to set up an encounter against Alison van Uytvanck.
Belgian Van Uytvanck, who stunned defending champion Garbine Muguruza in the second round, pulled off another upset as she beat 28th seed Anett Kontaveit 6-2, 6-3.
The 27th ranked Carla Suarez Navarro from Spain also crashed out as she suffered a 6-1, 7-6 (7-3) defeat at the hands of Belinda Bencic from Switzerland.
