Newsroom 29/06/2014 | 12:01

Third seed Simona Halep is into the fourth round at Wimbledon after crushing Belinda Bencic (17) on Saturday in straight sets – 6-4, 6-1 – taking just 70 minutes.

Bencic, who was Wimbledon junior champion just 12 months ago, found the step up in class against French Open runner-up Halep too much.

Bencic has had to suffer comparisons to former Swiss star Martina Hingis but will be back next year – and will be looking to make a bigger impact with a full season in the seniors under her belt.

“I think I can be really happy with this week. I reached third round. It’s my best result so far,” she said. “And it’s really great after I played just the juniors last year that I’m here in the main draw and I could win two rounds.

“So I’m happy with that, but obviously I will keep improving.”

Next up for the Romanian player to return to the All England Club for the second Monday, where she will take on Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan for a place in her first Wimbledon quarter-final.

“I believe in myself and I think I have my chance to win,” Simona Halep said, quoted by Wimbledon.com.
