Former world number-one Caroline Wozniacki was the biggest casualty on Wimbledon's dramatic third day.
All Australian hopes have already been extinguished with the defeat of Samantha Stosur.
Caroline Wozniacki was just one point away from the second round.
But Austrian Tamira Paszek saved two match-points down to take the second set to a tie-break, and in that tie-break the 21-year-old pounced.
Losing the second set put the Dane off her stride, and Plazsek gained all the momentum as Rory Mcilroy's girlfriend wilted – the Austrian booking her place in the second round with a 5-7, 7-6, 6-4 win.
For a country that has won 26 singles titles, Aussie hopes were extinguished all too early.
The number-five seed Samantha Stosur played a match of wild fluctuations against the Netherlands' Arantxa Rus, the US Open champion losing 6-2, love-6, 6-4.
Meanwhile, the Women's Tennis Association says umpires will carry grunt-o-meters in order to drive grunting out of tennis.
Sharapova's wheels did need an oil, but she was a set up when bad light stopped play.

The Italian produced some lighter moments himself, but it was Federer producing the regal performance going through in three sets.
