Dark Saturday for Osaka & Serena

Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka out in third round of French Open.

Serena Williams’ bid for a record 24th Grand Slam title ended on Saturday when she was ousted from the French Open in the third round by US compatriot Sofia Kenin.

Osaka, who was bidding to win her third straight Grand Slam title after capturing the US Open and Australian Open titles, lost to Katerina Siniakova 6-4, 6-2.

Williams, the No. 10 seed, faced 20-year-old Sofia Kenin, who was born in Moscow before relocating to Florida. The younger player was not awed by the moment of playing a legend and took Williams out 6-2, 7-5.
