6:43 am on 1 June 2009

Ana Ivanovic has lost her chance to defend her French tennis Open crown, losing in straight sets to the Belarussian teenager Victoria Azarenka in round four.

Serbian Ivanovic struggle with a right knee injury since last year's victory at Roland Garros has seen her world ranking slip from number one to eighth.

The ninth-seeded Azarenka will meet world number one Dinara Safina in the quarter-final.
