A win in her final match would have put her in contention for a place in the round of 16, but she was unable to do so.
With one win, one draw and one loss, Kim failed to advance to the round of 16 as Knight improved to 2-1.
Kim had dreams of victory after taking a one-hole lead into the 17th hole, but dropped the 18th (par-4) to tie the match.
