Lu Yen-hsun crashed out of the men’s singles at Wimbledon in London yesterday, while
fellow Taiwanese Hsieh Su-wei cruised into the second round of the women’s singles late on Monday.
Taiwanese world No. 61 Lu started well against world No. 102 Dustin Brown, winning the first set, but the unorthodox German then began to frustrate Lu, bouncing back to complete a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 victory in 2 hours, 7 minutes.
The German saved three of five break points and converted four of 13 to set up a second-round clash with either 10th seed Rafael Nadal of Spain or Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil.
World No. 131 Hsieh caused a minor upset in the final match on Court 5 on Monday when she ousted world No. 50 Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-1, 6-4 in just 56 minutes. [FULL STORY]
