PARIS (AP) — The Latest on the French Open, the year’s second Grand Slam tennis tournament (all times local):
French Open defending champion Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia has lost in the first round.
The fifth-seeded Ostapenko, who upset Simona Halep in last year’s final, lost 7-5, 6-3 against Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine on Court Philippe Chatrier.
“Just amazing feeling,” said Kozlova after posting her first win over a Top 30 player.
Ostapenko became only the sixth defending women’s champion to lose in the opening round of her title defense at a major tournament.
Another seeded player has lost in the first round at Roland Garros.
