Top-seeded Simona Halep was derailed by unseeded Su-Wei Hsieh 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 on Saturday, leaving No. 7 Karolina Pliskova as the only top-10 seed standing entering the second week of play at the Grand Slam event - the fewest in a Grand Slam event in the Open era.
Halep, who ended her wait for a major title last month at the French Open, won the first set, had the chance to serve out for the victory and earned match point on her opponent's serve.
When Halep led 4-1 and 5-2 in the final set it looked as though she would live to fight another day but Hsieh broke back and repeated the trick at 5-5 when she landed a sweetly-timed backhand into the corner and Halep could only net.
