Naomi Osaka may not play again in 2021 after Indian Wells withdrawal

 

Naomi Osaka had said at the US Open that she planned to take a break from the sport; the 23-year-old won her first WTA title at Indian Wells in 2018; Johanna Konta has also pulled out of the upcoming WTA events in Chicago and Indian Wells.

 

 

Naomi Osaka, who said at the US Open that she planned to take a break from tennis, has officially pulled out of next month’s BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. The four-time Grand Slam champion fell in the third round of the year’s final major and afterwards told reporters she needed the break to concentrate on her mental health.

 

 

Naomi Osaka why

Osaka has struggled on court since she withdrew from the French Open in May amid a row with tournament officials over required media appearances, which she said had a negative impact on her.

 

 

The 23-year-old Japanese player won her first WTA title at Indian Wells in 2018. “We look forward to seeing you in 2022, Naomi,” the tournament said on Twitter. Johanna Konta has pulled out of the upcoming WTA events in Chicago and Indian Wells.

 

 

Japan's Naomi Osaka Makes Shock ExitThe 30-year-old withdrew from the US Open with a thigh injury, hours before she was due to play her first-round match last month. Konta was also forced to miss Wimbledon after a member of her team tested positive for Covid-19 on the event of the tournament, while she withdrew from the Olympic Games after contracting it herself.
