PARIS, June 6 (Reuters) - The French Open semi-final between defending champion Maria Sharapova and Belarussian third seed Victoria Azarenka has resumed after a 30-minute rain interruption on Thursday.

Azarenka had levelled the match by taking the second set 6-2, after the Russian second seed had won the opener 6-1, when the 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 Tony Jimenez)
