Tenth seed CoCo Vandeweghe ousted from Australian Open

Zhang Shaui

But the combustible American crashed out at the first hurdle on Monday, losing her temper and the first-round match to Hungarian 7-6 (7-4), 6-2. The towering American is at threat of losing his $100,000 appearance fee at the ASB Classic after video evidence suggested he was not giving 100 per cent in his second round loss against Peter Gojowczyk.

Despite the upsets, the competition remains tough with Caroline Wozniacki, Elina Svitolina and Jelena Ostapenko victorious in their first round matches along with top men's players Marin Cilic, Denis Shapovalov and Nick Kyrgios.

Isner's elimination is the latest blow in a horror opening day for Americans at Melbourne Park.

After going down in the first set 6-7 (4-7) in a gripping tie-break, Vandeweghe requested some courtside fruit.

Most impressively, he frustrated one of the best serves in men's tennis and broke Isner's serve four times.

Vandeweghe joined Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens among a host of high-profile American exits.

He will play Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov in the second round.

The 15-year-old qualifier from Ukraine beat the 2014 United States open semi-finalist who, at 32, is more than twice her age, 6-2, 6-2.

"In women's tennis, anything can happen when there is no Serena Williams", Babos said.

Five other Americans also lost on the first morning of the tournament.

Champion Stephens, the 13th seed, was bundled out in three sets by China's plucky Zhang Shuai.

Sofia Kenin lost 6-4 6-4 to No. 12 seed Julia Goerges.

John Millman has progressed to the second round in front of his home fans, beating Croatian Borna Coric 7-5 6-4 6-1.

CoCo Vandeweghe had gotten her first code violation earlier for time violation/civil disobedience: refusing to take court without eating a banana first.

How are they not on court? "I mean, c'mon, that's not my fault", she said during an argument with the chair umpire.

"I'm waiting for the bananas", she railed at chair umpire Fergus Murphy. I don't have to make myself uncomfortable because it's ill prepared. And they didn't have any on court so I was just trying to wait for what I asked for to come.

Vandeweghe eventually got her bananas after a 60-second delay, before copping a time violation.

"So you want me to screw up routine because of an ill prepared court?" You don't get a point penalty immediately so I think it must have been bad. I'm being very cool. "I played a little bit too careful and safe". It cost her later as she received a point penalty for a second warning for unsportsmanlike conduct.
