Naomi Osaka is withdrawing from her second consecutive Grand Slam tournament – but says she’ll be back for the Olympics.
On Thursday, Osaka’s agent released a statement that the No. 2 world-ranked player would skip Wimbledon to spend “personal time with friends and family”. The 23-year-old “will be ready for the Olympics and is excited to play in front of her home fans”.
Earlier this month, Osaka withdrew from the French Open after the first round, citing her mental health after she was fined for refusing to speak to the media.
Wimbledon is scheduled to begin June 28th.
