Marina Erakovic has been ousted from the women's singles at the French Open by fifth-seed Petra Kvitova 6-4 6-4.

After losing the first set, Erakovic led 3-1 in the second set after breaking Kvitova in her first two service games, but was unable to hold the advantage. She was broken in the fifth and ninth games of the set, with Kvitova holding serve to win in 68 minutes.

The New Zealand No 1, ranked 55 spots below Czech Kvitova, was broken in the first game of the match, before the rest of the first set went to serve, ending in 32 minutes.

In a contrast, the second set saw four of the first five games go against serve, before Kvitova got the pivotal break in the ninth game.

Erakovic, with playing partner Arantxa Parra Santonia, remain alive in the women's doubles, facing German pair Kristina Barrois and Annika Beck.
