Wimbledon: Taiwanese opponent eliminates world No. 1 Simona Halep

Simona Halep was ready for a vacation. 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 after winning the French Open.

The Spaniard's 6-1 6-2 6-4 victory means Roger Federer can not catch him even if the Swiss goes on to win a ninth title at the All England Club.

Novak Djokovic (12), Serbia, def. Kyle Edmund (21), Britain, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

Zverev, playing for the third day in succession, was shocked by Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis, ranked 138, in a gruelling five sets, 7-6 (7/2), 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.

Fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro advanced with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 victory over Frenchman Benoit Paire.

Nadal will play Czech Republic's Jiri Vesely next after he conquered Italian Fabio Fognini 7-6 (7-4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.

Zsa Zsa, the 'World's Ugliest Dog,' dies
The English bulldog's owner, Megan Brainard , has confirmed that Zsa Zsa died peacefully in her sleep last night. We were all saying our goodbyes and Mareslie went right over and gave her a kiss.

Rafael Nadal guaranteed he will stay No. 1 in the rankings after Wimbledon as he reached the fourth round with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 victory over 19-year-old Australian Alex de Minaur.

She will next face Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia on July 9.

With Jelena Ostapenko also advancing in the women's draw, it's the first time in history Latvia has more than one player in the round of 16 at a Grand Slam.

Alison Van Uytvanck, Belgium, def. Anett Kontaveit (28), Estonia, 6-2, 6-3.

Russian's 14th seed Daria Kasatkina roared back from 4-1down in the opening set to beat Australian Ashleigh Barty 7-5 6-3.

Kerber will next meet Switzerland's Belinda Bencic, who ousted 27th seed Carla Suarez Navarro earlier on Saturday.

That evenness is why France is the team to beat in the mind of Jeffrey Marcus, publisher of the World Cup newsletter "The Banter". Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have ripped into Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after his France performance at the World Cup .

"I am just trying to focus on myself, every round trying to play better and improve my level, and enjoy the time on and off the court". I think because I was exhausted, because I'm exhausted, I couldn't stay focused for every ball. I was too exhausted. "My muscles are gone", she said.

It's the first time in the Open era that none of the top five women's seeds have made the last 16 of a Slam.

Only six seeds - including Pliskova - remain in same half of the draw as the American, who will play Russia's Evgeniya Rodina, the world No.120, in the fourth round.

World number one Nadal and second-ranked Federer, with 37 Grand Slam and 177 singles titles in total between them, are no strangers to doubles. "Because every day, something odd is happening in the draw".

Bencic will line up against No. 11 seed Angie Kerber, who was at her machine-best downing No. 18 Naomi Osaka 6-2, 6-4.

They played together at the Laver Cup past year. "She (Halep) played incredible, I had to run and fight for every point". She will also force Halep to step in and dictate, perhaps more than the Romanian is comfortable with. But the 48th-ranked Hsieh got out of that predicament with a backhand victor. She did a lot of that during her news conference, making jokes and cracking herself up.
