Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka crashed out of his second successive tournament at the first hurdle Wednesday, losing his Shanghai Masters opener after squandering a 3-0 lead in the final set.

The world number four started brightly in Shanghai, taking the first set in his tightly-fought battle with Gilles Simon of France.
