Defending champion Ana Ivanovic crashed out of the French Open today as she lost in straight sets to Belarus' Victoria Azarenko on Suzanne Lenglen court. Given that eighth seed Ivanovic had not lost a set in her run to the last 32, Azarenko's 6-2 6-3 win came as a surprise. The ninth seed will take on top seed and title favourite Dinara Safina next.
