Osaka was dismissed by world No. 42 in singles Czech Katerina Siniakova 6-4, 6-2 while Williams lost to fellow American Sofia Kenin 6-2, 7-5.

Madison Keys of the USA celebrates winning her fourth round match of the French Open tennis tournament against Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic in two sets, 6-2, 6-4, at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, Monday, June 3, 2019.

Osaka suggested the pressure of entering Roland Garros as the world number one made it hard for her to play with the same freedom. Serena, who looked rusty in her first match didn't look at her best clearly set back by lack of match practice.

The 20-year-old Kenin, who was born in Russian Federation, has now won 11 of her last 13 against American foes on tour. "I think that worked really well".

Barty battles Keys in the quarterfinals on Wednesday at Roland-Garros.

Although her compatriots will be hoping she can end a 46-year singles title drought for Australian women at the French Open, Barty is not looking any further ahead than her next session on the practice courts.

"It (playing cricket) was incredible, it made me more hungry to come back and have success in tennis". Keys beat Barty in the round of 128 at the 2017 French Open.

Now she will take on 27-year-old Halep, the No. 3 seed, who dispatched another teenager, Iga Swiatek of Poland, by a 6-1, 6-0 score Monday.

During the press conference after the game, Serena said, "She played really well, especially in the first set where she hit pretty much within an inch of the line all the time".

Here is the way Williams' coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, summed up her mindset: "She doesn't come here to do second round, third round, quarters or semis".

"I haven't played anyone like that in a long time, she played really well", she said of her young opponent before adding that she herself had been completely off the mark.

Madison Keys and Ashleigh Barty meet in the quarterfinals of the 2019 tennis French Open.

"I think overall, me being able to handle different occasions is getting better and better", Barty said.

"I just feel like there has been a weight on me".

She earned a fourth-round date with defending champ Simona Halep.

"At least I can start trying to put the time in now".

In's men's play, No. 1 Novak Djokovic's streak at majors is now up to 24 matches as he defeated qualifier Salvatore Caruso of Italy 6-3, 6-3, 6-2. "I can only control how I prepare, how I play, and ultimately how we go about my next match".

Greek dark horse Stefanos Tsitsipas completed a darkness-interrupted third-round match to beat Filip Krajinovic 7-5, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (8-6), and faces Stan Wawrinka next in a Sunday date after the Swiss 2015 victor saved four set points to complete a 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (10-8) win over Grigor Dimitrov.
