Naomi Osaka’s hopes of winning three consecutive Grand Slams are over after she was beaten in straight sets by Katerina Siniakova in the third round of the French Open.

The world No 1’s Roland Garros campaign has been a struggle as she was bagelled in the first set before staging a comeback against Anna Karolina Schmiedlova in the first round and also required three sets to beat Victoria Azarenka in round two.

But there was to be no third miracle for the Japanese player as she went down 6-4, 6-2 against the Czech in one hour and 17 minutes.

One break of serve in the first set and two in the second were enough to earn Siniakova the victory.

“It’s amazing, I can’t believe it, I am so happy now,” the world No 42 said.

“I played my best tennis and I hope it continues.”

She will face Madison Keys in the next round after the 14th seeded American battled to a 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 6-4 win over Russian qualifier Anna Blinkova.
