Australian trio Olivia Rogowska, Isabella Holland and Sacha Jones have all lost in the first round of women's qualifying at the French Open.
It was a similar tale of woe for men's hopeful Bernard Tomic at the Open de Nice tournament in the south of France, where he was bundled out by Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin.
The fifth-seeded Tomic took the first set but bowed out after a 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 defeat
In qualifying, Rogowska - who reached the second round of the main draw on debut at Roland Garros in 2009 - lost 7-5, 6-3 to China's Shuai Jang.
Holland lost 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 to French 24th seed Iryna Bremond, while Jones fell 6-4, 6-2 to Sandra Zaniewska of Poland.
