In the season's second Diamond League meeting, David Oliver stormed to victory in the 110m hurdles, and Almaz Ayana won the women's 5,000m in a world-leading 14min 14.32sec.
But Fraser-Pryce suffered a big loss in her first 100m of the season, behind Nigerian winner Blessing Okagbare and Jamaican teammate Veronica Campbell-Brown, who was fourth.
