The US Open tennis champion Samantha Stosur has been bundled out of Wimbledon after losing on day three of the tournament.

Stosur becomes the the highest seeded casualty so far at this year's Wimbledon after she was beaten by world number 72 Dutchwoman Arantxa Rus.

After losing the first set she came back to win the second but couldn't push on and lost the deciding set.

Stosur says she struggled to maintain momentum throughout the match.

The former world number one and Wimbledon's seventh seed Caroline Wozniacki was also knocked out on day three.
