Carlos Moya was the highest-profile casualty on the opening day at the Australian Open, losing in four sets to unheralded compatriot Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

The Spaniard was the first seed to tumble from the men's singles draw - losing 7-5 6-3 3-6 6-3 to spoil an impressive personal record. Moya previously was unbeaten in 15 matches against fellow Spaniards, including Garcia-Lopez, whom he defeated in Chennai, India, earlier this month.

Moya appeared to be on the way to making it 16 wins when he led 3-1 and 40-0 on his opponent's serve in the first set.

"I had it under control I think," Moya said.

"Then at 3-1, love-40, and then 5-4 serving I played a horrible game.

"Then I lose control a little bit and I lose the rhythm and made many mistakes with my forehand.

"Once he won the first set, he started to play better and I play worse and worse.

"Then I didn't have no chance."
