Ivanovic Stunned in First Round by Qualifier

MELBOURNE — Ana Ivanovic’s Grand Slam woes continued on Day 1 of the Australian Open. The No. 5 seed was the first big casualty at Melbourne Park after she suffered a 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 loss to No. 142 Lucie Hradecka in the first round on Monday. With the loss, Ivanovic has made the quarterfinal stage of a major just twice in her last 27 Slam appearances. She became the first top-5 player to lose in the first round of the Australian Open since Jennifer Capriati lost to Marlene Weingartner in 2003.
