Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya fell short in their bid to become the first all-Japanese pair to win a Grand Slam women’s doubles title on Sunday, losing the French Open final in straight sets to the Czech Republic’s Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova.

The sixth-seeded Czech pair needed just 1 hour and 5 minutes to wrap up the 6-3, 6-3 victory over their unseeded opponents on the Philippe-Chatrier Court at Roland Garros.
