Wimbledon, London :

Australia's French Open finalist Samantha Stosur was brought back down to Earth as she sensationally crashed out of the Wimbledon first round on Tuesday.

Stosur, the sixth seed, was beaten in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 by Estonian qualifier Kaia Kanepi, just weeks after reaching her first Grand Slam final.

The unheralded Kanepi is ranked 74 places below the Australian number one.

Stosur, 26, was unable to build on her performance in Paris and can now concentrate on the doubles, where she partners Russia's Nadia Petrova.
