2014 AUS OPEN Day 1: Kvitova[6],Errani[7], Haas[12], Venus Upset

Day 1 of the 2014 Australian Open is complete and already some significant upsets have occurred. The most significant to me (personally) is technically not an upset since the higher ranked player won. 7-time major champion Venus Williams lost to Ekaterina Makarova[23] 2-6 6-4 6-4 in the 1st round.

Other notable first round losses were Petra Kvitova[6], Sara Errani[7] and Tommy Haas[12].

However, Serena Williams[1], Victoria Azarenka[2], Li Na[4] all won. Other notable wins on the women's side of the draw were by Samantha Stosur[17], Ana Ivanovic[14], Simona Halep[11], Caroline Wozniacki[10], Angelique Kerber[9] and Jelena Jankovic[8].

Novak Djokovic[2], David Ferrer[3], Roger Federer[6],Tomas Berdych[7],Richard Gasquet[8], Stanislas Wawrinka[9], Jo-Wilfried Tsonga[10] and Milos Raonic[11] all won. John Isner[12] retired after losing the first two sets with a bad ankle against lefty Martin Klizan.
