Reigning French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko is out.

The fifth seed was upset in the first round by Ukrainian Kateryna Kozlova.

Kozlova won in straight sets, 7-5 6-3.

Ostapenko, 20, is the second woman in the Open era whose Roland Garros title defence has ended in the first round, after Anastasia Myskina’s loss in 2005.

Kozlova will play either Victoria Azarenka or Katerina Siniakova in the second round.
