Ranked 188th in the word, Frenchwoman Coin recorded eight aces and benefited from 34 unforced errors by Ivanovic to bounce the Serb from the tournament.
Hampered by a thumb injury that kept her out of the Beijing Olympics, Ivanovic pulled out a 6-1 4-6 6-4 victory over Russian Vera Dushevina on Tuesday in the first round.
The 20-year-old Ivanovic is one of three women – along with Jelena Jankovic and Maria Sharapova – to hold the top spot in the rankings since last year’s US Open winner, Justine Henin, retired in May.
