Hsieh Su-wei credited her "carefree" approach after she stunned Britain's Johanna Konta in the French Open first round on Tuesday.
Playing in front of a disappointingly small crowd, Konta broke Hsieh in her first service game and again in her third, finishing points at a remarkable speed to take the first set 6-1 in little over 20-minutes.
Konta raced through the first set but then got bogged down in a battle and became thoroughly frustrated as Hsieh ground out a 1-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 victory.
"My expectations are never results-orientated", she said in a press conference following her defeat.
The second-seeded Serb dispatched clay-court specialist Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to reach the second round of the clay-court major.
Konta wasted no time stamping her authority on proceedings, hitting the ball with customary clout off both forehand and backhand. She will next be up against American Taylor Townsend in the second round.
Johanna Konta has claimed that she is happy with her recent performances on clay, despite winning just two matches on the surface this season and yesterday losing in the first round of the French Open for a third successive season. The former world doubles No. 1 won the Roland Garros doubles in 2014 (a year after winning the Wimbledon doubles). "I think it's quite fun to play the match like that, I don't know if that's really nice or but I like to go out on court and enjoy the match".
"In Taiwan we don't have a professional tennis court so I always travelling to somewhere to practice with my coach and then my friend previous year she introduced me to her friend", Hsieh said with a smile.
Wawrinka saved two set-points in the second-set tie-breaker before going on to down the 152nd-ranked qualifier.
The 29th seed, whose career has been plagued by injury, confirmed his participation in this year's French Open only last Friday after suffering shoulder and back problems.
But Hsieh fought back and Konta had to save five break points before her opponent eventually prevailed in the second-set tiebreaker.
Wales manager Coleman said: "He doesn't want to play global football, which is a disappointment from our point of view". I'm looking forward to this game with Serbia for more than one reason and I'm not thinking past that.
