Amelie Mauresmo was upset in the first round of the French Open, losing to Anna-Lena Groenefeld 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday.

The 29-year-old Mauresmo has never advanced past the quarterfinals at her home Grand Slam tournament, losing at that stage in 2003 and '04.

The two-time Grand Slam champion, who lost in the second round at Roland Garros last year, won her 25th career title at the Paris Indoors in February.

Mauresmo was seeded 16th at this year's French Open.
