The result leaves Czech Karolina Pliskova, the seventh seed, as the only women's top-10 player still in the tournament.

De Minaur had only won one main draw Grand Slam match before this week and was completely outplayed by Nadal, who moved into the fourth round of Wimbledon for the eighth time.

Hsieh, the world number 48, battled back from 2-5 down in the final set and saved a match point when the Romanian served for the match at 5-3 in the decider.

"I am just happy to be in the fourth round again". I am too exhausted.

Top seed Simona Halep became the latest high-profile casualty of the opening week of Wimbledon after losing to Hsieh Su-wei in three sets.

Hsieh thoroughly deserved her win which booked her a fourth-round clash with Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova.

Halep failed to carry on the momentum, and a huge forehand victor gave Hsieh the first break of the second set and a 2-1 lead.

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

Hsieh continued posing puzzles though and broke in the third game of the second set as she absorbed a fierce baseline barrage before punishing a clumsy Halep volley by spearing a backhand down the line to roars from the crowd.

She grew anxious over his slipping grades and reluctance to go to Banyan Elementary School in Miami. Suarez, a teacher for 33 years was a recipient of the teacher of the year award.

"That's where I want to be, playing on big courts against big players", de Minaur said.

"That's something that I took it all in today".

"A positive match against a player with a lot of energy, some tough moments", the world No.1 told the BBC.

The 14th seed from Latvia will now meet Aliaksandra Sasnovich, who reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career with a 6-3 6-1 win against 26th seed Daria Gavrilova.

But the Serb managed to refocus after a lengthy complaint to umpire Jake Garner.

"It was an important point. It didn't make sense".

Juan Martin del Potro made the last 16 for the first time in five years when the Argentine fifth seed defeated France's Benoît Paire 6-4, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3.

Alison Van Uytvanck also took the scalp of another seed.

Switzerland's Belinda Bencic, a former top 10 player whose ranking slumped out of the top 300 past year after wrist surgery, made the fourth round for the second time with a 6-1, 7-6 (7/3) win over Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro.
