Aljaz Bedene has been knocked out the Australian Open, while Garbine Muguruza battled to the second round.
The Brit played an up and down match against Victor Estrella Burgos before eventually being beaten 7-6 (9-7) 7-5 0-6 6-3.
It was a disappointing result for the world No. 109, playing a man ranked six places ahead of him in the rankings, particularly after being a break up in the fourth set.
There were no such problems for French Open winner Muguruza, although it wasn’t all plain sailing for the Spaniard.
Muguruza appeared to be struggling with her thigh and called the trainer out but still managed to beat her opponent Marina Erakovic in straight sets 7-5 6-4.

She will face Samantha Crawford in the next round, after the American recovered from a set down against her compatriot Lauren Davis to win 4-6 6-3 6-0.
There was no such luck for fourth seed Simona Halep, who crashed out to Shelby Rogers in the first round.
Fellow seed Kiki Bertens also went out, losing 7-5 7-6 (7-5) to Varvara Lepchenko.
However, Czech 10th seed Tomas Berdych eased through as Luca Vanni retired after losing the first set 6-1.
