The British trio exit was completed at around the same time as the British no. 3, Johanna Konta could not capitalise on a good win yesterday, losing a competitive first set with some long tussles.
But it all went away from the British teenager rapidly in the second set with breaks at either end of the set to shut the door on any further Brits in the singles draw.
Robson has already gone out of the doubles (as have Tara Moore and Melanie South).
But Watson (partnered with Vera Dushevina) and Konta/Anne Keothavong have yet to get underway – so at least there will be some further opportunity for grass practice.
Robson and Watson are expected to lead home hopes at next week’s Aegon International at Eastbourne.
