Osaka’s dream shattered

World number one Naomi Osaka’s hopes of winning a third successive Grand Slam ended Saturday when she was knocked out of the French Open in the third round by unheralded Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic.

Japanese top seed Osaka, the reigning US and Australian Open champion, crashed to a 6-4, 6-2 defeat to the 42nd-ranked Czech.

“Losing is probably the best thing that could have happened,” said 21-year-old Osaka, the reigning Australian and US Open champion.

“I felt very tired. In the other matches I had headaches, maybe that’s the stress.

“I felt there was a weight on me. This hasn’t been the happiest of times.”
