Halep's exit means only one of the women's top-10 seeds remains in the tournament - No. 7 Karolina Pliskova.

Halep served for the match at 5-3 in the final set and had a match point in the next game, but the French Open champion couldn't capitalize on her chances. Hsieh saved the match point with a backhand winner before holding for 5-5 and broke Halep in the next game. The Romanian had two more break points at 6-5 but couldn't take advantage.

The match featured a total of 14 breaks of serve - seven for each player - including five straight to open the first set.
