Third seed Halep out of Wimbledon

Third-seeded Romanian Simona Halep was knocked out of Wimbledon on Monday, losing in the first round 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 to Jana Cepelova of Slovakia.

Halep reached the semi-finals 12 months ago, just a month after finishing runner-up at the French Open.

The 22-year-old Cepelova, ranked 106 in the world, had won only one match on the tour all year before Tuesday.

She goes on to face another Romanian, Monica Niculescu, for a place in the last 32.
