Former Champ knocked out at French Open

PARIS (AP) -- Four-time French Open champion Justine Henin has
been upset in the fourth round by Australian Sam Stosur, 2-6, 6-1,
6-4.
The loss Monday ended Henin's streak of 24 consecutive victories
at Roland Garros. This was her first appearance at the tournament
since ending a 20-month retirement.
Stosur trailed 4-3 in the final set but surged to the finish,
closing out the victory with an overhead slam. Henin looked tight
in the final game, pushing backhands into the net.
The 26-year-old Stosur was a semifinalist last year and is
ranked a career-best No. 7. She has won 18 matches on clay this
year, most on the women's tour.
Her opponent in the quarterfinals will be top-ranked Serena
Williams.
