DJOKOVIC AND CARUSO HUGGING STORY: World number one Naomi Osaka of Japan was knocked out of the French Open when she lost 6-4 6-2 to Czech Katerina Siniakova in the third round in Paris on Saturday (June 1).

The defeat ended a 16-match winning streak in Grand Slams for Osaka, who won last year's U.S. Open and this year's Australian Open.

Serena Williams's quest for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title was put on hold after the former world number one was knocked out of the French Open in the third round following a 6-2 7-5 defeat by fellow American Sofia Kenin.

Chasing Margaret Smith Court's all-time record, which was built over the amateur and professional eras, Williams failed to recover from a woeful opening set on Court Philippe Chatrier.

In the players' first meeting, world number 35 Kenin pulled Williams around the court and made the most of her opponent's unforced errors to set up a last-16 encounter with Australian eighth seed Ashleigh Barty.

Williams, who won the last of her 23 major singles titles at the 2017 Australian Open, suffered her earliest Grand Slam exit since Wimbledon 2014.

Top seed Novak Djokovic barely broke sweat as he sauntered through the French Open third round with a 6-3 6-3 6-2 victory against Italian qualifier Salvatore Caruso.

Djokovic has never lost a Grand Slam match to a player ranked as low as Caruso, and never looked like doing so as he breezed to two match points, needing just one of those to put Caruso, the world number 147, out of his misery.
