PARIS, June 6 (Reuters) - The French Open semi-final between defending champion Maria Sharapova and Belarussian third seed Victoria Azarenka was interrupted by rain showers on Thursday.

Azarenka had just levelled the match by taking the second set 6-2 after the Russian second seed had won the opener 6-1 when covers were brought on to Court Philippe Chatrier.

The second semi-final will feature world number one Serena Williams of the United States and Italian fifth seed Sara Errani. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ed Osmond)
