Erakovic out of French Open

3:23 pm on 2 June 2012

New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic's French Open campaign has ended with a second round loss in the doubles.

Erakovic and her partner Monica Niculescu were thrashed in straight sets by the tough Chinese combination of Zheng Jie and Peng Shuai, 6-2 6-1.

Zheng's won the doubles in 2006 at both the Australian Open and Wimbledon so Erakovic isn't too disappointed to lose to such a top player.

She says she'll team up with Thailand's Tamarine Tanasugarn again in her first tilt at the Eastbourne WTA tournament and at Wimbledon, though she's not sure who she'll play with in the next event at Birmingham.
