Watson, who saved three match points on her way to beating Ksenia Pervak in the second round of the singles yesterday, and partner Marina Erakovic from New Zealand went down 6-4, 6-0 to ninth seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke.

There was also disappointment for Britons Jamie Delgado and Ken Skupski as they were beaten 6-0, 6-7 (2/7), 6-3 by Polish pair Tomasz Bednarek and Jerzy Janowicz in the men's draw.

Wimbledon doubles champion Jonny Marray, who has teamed up with Brazilian Andre Sa for this tournament in Melbourne, edged out Lukas Lacko and Igor Zelenay in their opener 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7/5).
