The biggest shock was the first, the in-form No5 seed Ana Ivanovic. It started well enough, a 21-minute 6-1 first set, but little more than an hour later, an error-riddled match from Ivanovic opened the door for the doubles expert Hradecka to up her game and take the surprise win, 6-3 6-2.

Coming back to the Australian Open as defending champion has felt surreal at times for Stan Wawrinka but the Swiss fourth seed was all business in his first-round thrashing of Turkish trailblazer Marsel Ilhan. Wawrinka was keen to break the seal on his title defence and was a man in a hurry as he despatched Ilhan 6-1 6-4 6-2 in a tick under 90 minutes on a warm and windy day at Rod Laver Arena.
Serena Williams made a statement with her outfit and her play on Tuesday night, cruising into the second round of Australian Open 2015 for the loss of just four games.  Williams wasted little time registering her 57th Grand Slam first round win from 58 starts; she won 6-0 6-4.
Hewitt rolled back the years and everyone at Rod Laver Arena gets all nostalgic. It happened again on Tuesday night as the fidgety, feisty, firebrand put Ze Zhang in his place 6-3 1-6 6-0 6-4 while the crowd roared its approval.
Djokovic also had an easy outing as the Serb was clinical in his opening round task at Australian Open 2015 on Tuesday; a 6-3 6-2 6-4 result against Slovenian-Brit-in-waiting Aljaz Bedene.
Venus Williams also raced through the opening round of Australian Open 2015 on Tuesday. The 18th seed powered past the world No.89, dropping as many games as her opponent has names at Hisense Arena. Her 20 winners were exactly double the Spaniard’s in the 6-2 6-2 dismissal.
