5:44 pm on 23 May 2012

Marina Erakovic's last tournament before the French Tennis Open has been shortlived.

The New Zealand number one has lost her first round match at the Strasbourg International in France to Japan's world number 88 Ayumi Morita 6-1 6-3.

The match was carried over from the previous day when rain intervened with Morita leading 5-1 in the first set.

Erakovic was the tournament sixth seed.
