Chan Hao-ching (詹皓晴) of Taiwan and Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia, the 14th seeds, won their first round encounter against Laura Robson of Great Britain and Coco Vandeweghe of the United States 7-6 (3), 6-4.
Considered one of the contenders for the title after Serena Williams opted against defending her Australian title, Muguruza had a troubled preparation.
"I maybe could have done things better, but at the end, she deserves to win". A backhand victor down the line brought her to set point and when Muguruza missed a return, Hsieh had the first set in hand.
Muguruza did not seem to have any answers against the unconventional play of her opponent and her poor play lead to an early break in the second set.
Chan played most of previous year with Martina Hingis, culminating in a U.S. Open title in September, the first Grand Slam victory of Chan's lengthy career.
