Defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova was knocked out of the French Open after being upset in the third round of the tournament by 30th-seeded Maria Kirilenko.

Kuznetsova narrowly averted a loss in the previous round, when she saved four match points before coming back to win. She delayed her departure briefly on Friday, too, saving two match points before Kirilenko converted her third when Kuznetsova pushed a backhand wide.The loss means Kuznetsova will drop out of the top 10 in the rankings for the first time in more than four years.
