Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka react after crashing out of French Open

Serena Williams has said she is surprised to have been knocked out of the French Open in the third round. The three-time champion and owner of 23 majors was beaten 6-2, 7-5, by 20-year-old compatriot Sofia Kenin, who is ranked 35 in the world.
Meanwhile, Naomi Osaka, who was dreaming of a calendar grand slam a few days ago, also crashed out of the tournament, saying nerves had been affecting her recent performances. The world No 1 was bageled in the first set of her campaign, taken to three sets by Victoria Azarenka in round two and hit 38 unforced errors in a little over an hour and a quarter on day seven, rendering her powerless to stop the world No 42, Katerina Siniakova, from a 6-4, 6-2 win.
