Former world No 1 Naomi Osaka has pulled out of the 2022 Wimbledon because of a left Achilles injury, the four-time Grand Slam champion revealed this on Saturday.
Japan’s Osaka experienced the injury in Madrid, compelling her to miss the WTA 1000 event in Rome in the leadup to the French Open.
Days ago, Naomi Osaka posted a video via social media, saying:
“Here’s me running on a underwater treadmill because my Achilles is being stubborn still (sic) I must be aging or something.”
She added on Saturday:
“My Achilles still isn’t right so I’ll see you next time.”
