Konta and Edmund go out in round one
Johanna Konta and Kyle Edmund are both out of the Australian Open after losing their first-round matches.
British number one and 12th seed Konta was beaten 6-4 6-2 by world number 78 Ons Jabeur, while Edmund suffered a 7-6 (9-7) 6-3 7-6 (7-4) loss to Serbia's 24th seed Dusan Lajovic.
Konta, who was playing just her second match in almost five months after battling with a knee injury, was not too despondent after the defeat, admitting it will take time to get back up to speed.
She looked rusty throughout but was happy to report afterwards that her knee felt good, which is a huge positive for the rest of the year.
"It's important to recognise the season is long," Konta told BBC Sport. "I'm not going to rush or sprint towards suddenly packing it all in. Things will come with time and putting the right work in."
Losing both Konta and Edmund comes as a blow to the Brits, who saw number one Dan Evans go through to the second round on Monday.
They will also be hoping for more luck with Katie Boulter, Heather Watson, Harriet Dart and Cameron Norrie, who are all in action later on Tuesday in what will be jam-packed day of action.
