PARIS (AP) - Former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic lost in the third round Saturday, beaten 6-3, 6-3 by 23rd-seeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic.

Ivanovic, a former No. 1 seeded 11th, won the title at Roland Garros in 2008, and lost in the final the year before.

Safarova, meanwhile, came into the day with only a 2-7 record in third-round matches at Grand Slam tournaments and only once, in 2007, made it as far as the fourth round at the French Open.
