Hsieh saved the match point with a backhand victor before holding for 5-5 and breaking Halep in the next game.

The latest was fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev, who lost to the qualifier Ernests Gulbis, 7-6 (2), 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.

And Hsieh's unusual game-plan matched her whimsical personality off the court.

Third seed Muguruza joined second seed Caroline Wozniacki, fourth seed Sloane Stephens, fifth seed Elina Svitolina, sixth seed Caroline Garcia and eighth seed Petra Kvitova on the way out, along with five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova.

The Taiwanese-Chinese duo saved two of four break points and converted six of 11, winning 60 of the 105 points contested to set up a second-round match against Christina McHale of the USA and Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.

Japan's Kei Nishikori raced past 15th seeded Australian Kei Nishikori 6-1 7-6 (3) 6-4 to reach the Wimbledon last 16 for a third time in his career.

Halep is the first No. 1 seed to fail to reach the round of 16 at Wimbledon since Serena Williams in 2014.

What will she do with the free time?

"But I always say the same".

"I enjoy a lot on the court more than before,"said Hsieh".

His win on Saturday was his third successive five-setter having also played three matches in qualifying.

"I had to run and fight for every point".

"I will have my chances, have to stay aggressive and try to dictate more to the rhythm of today rather than yesterday, that's for sure". "I try to practice normal with the girls, don't go too insane on the drop shot". "That's what I think".
