Andy Murray is the only British tennis player left in the Australian Open after a very disappointing opening day.

Britain did have six players in the competition at the start of the tournament on Monday.

But James Ward, Elena Baltacha, Heather Watson and Laura Robson all lost their singles matches and Anne Keothavong retired against Mona Barthel.

Andy Murray begins his campaign against American, world number 84 Ryan Harrison on Tuesday.

The Scot's in good form already, having last week won the Brisbane International warm-up tournament.

It was the first time Britain had six singles players in the main draw of a foreign Grand Slam since 1992.
