Watson out early; IN BRIEF.
The British number one followed up her openinground exit in Indian Wells with another early failure despite taking the first set.
Morita broke twice to Watson's one to edge a close second set before the same pattern was repeated in the third, the Japanese winning 1-6 7-5 6-4 to set up a meeting with Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium.
Watson has yet to win a match since last month climbing to a career-high 39 in the world rankings.
