Wimbledon shocks as Nadal and Djokovic move on

Wimbledon 2018 Defending Champion Garbine Muguruza Knocked Out As Seeds Scatter

Simona Halep wasted match point en route to becoming the latest big-name casualty in the women's singles at Wimbledon as Hsieh Su-wei produced a memorable round-three comeback.

Zverev, playing for the third day in succession, was shocked by world number 138 Ernests Gulbis in a gruelling five-set contest 7-6, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.

It will be Hsieh's first appearance in the last 16 of a Slam where she will face Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia for a place in the quarter-finals.

Hsieh was previously ranked as world number one in doubles, and previously won the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, the 2014 French Open and 2013 WTA Tour Championships with Peng Shuai (彭帥).

Halep battled with her own game as well as the crafty spins and tactics of her 48th-ranked opponent but still looked like emerging as the victor when she led 5-2 in the third set.

In a sport often dominated by baseline bashers Hsieh brought so much more to the party.

Halep was a point from victory while ahead 5-4 as Hsieh served at 30-40.

Jiri Vesely, Czech Republic, def. Fabio Fognini (19), Italy, 7-6 (4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. The Argentine, who had crossed the net to help Paire back on his feet after a fall during the second set, still took a 3-0 lead in the third before the Frenchman fought back to level it at 3-3.

Deschamps backs Mbappe to keep improving
He raised his scoring rate at Dutch club FC Groningen, with 32 goals in 56 appearances, earning him a transfer to the Bundesliga. Yevgeny Gavrilo was accused of planning to disrupt World Cup events in Samara in 2016 by Russia's General Prosecutor.

She is the first women's top seed to lose to an unseeded player at Wimbledon since Ana Ivanovic lost to China's Zheng Jie 10 years ago, also just after winning the French Open.

Jelena Ostapenko, the 2017 French Open champion, is safely through after a straight-sets win over Vitalia Diatchenko.

Wimbledon 2018 kicked off on July 2 and will run through July 15.

"It was a positive match against a player who is young with a lot of energy out there", he said.

Big-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic, the 2016 finalist, reached the fourth round after beating Austrian Dennis Novak 7-6 (5) 4-6 7-5 6-2. "I couldn't stay focused for every ball", Halep said. I am too exhausted.

After Halep started strongly to win the opener it was her 32-year-old opponent who responded well to force a deciding set.

She plays an unconventional brand of tennis, relying on drop shots repeatedly - which, she said, tends to drive practice partners "crazy" - and gripping her racket with two hands for forehands and backhands.

In the women's draw, Belgium's Alison van Uytvanck, who dismissed last year's champion Garbine Muguruza in the previous round, continued her progress in a confident 6-2, 6-3 triumph over Estonian Anett Kontaveit.
