Naomi Osaka posted on Twitter and Instagram that she won’t play in the French Open in Paris. “Unfortunately I won’t be able to play the French Open this year. My hamstring is still sore so I won’t have enough time to prepare for the clay, these 2 tournaments came too close to each other for me this time,” Osaka posted.
Osaka had her left hamstring wrapped all through the US Open. She recently told correspondents she endured the injury during the Western and Southern Open, which was held seven days before the beginning of the US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY.
Osaka pulled back from the Western and Southern Open final, referring to the hamstring injury, giving Victoria Azarenka the triumph by means of a walkover. Osaka revitalized to vanquish Azarenka 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the US Open final on Saturday. With the success, Osaka climbed six spots to No. 3 in the WTA chart.
