Osaka officially withdrew from this year’s Australian Open at eight days’ notice with no reason.

But that reason has become clear now with her social media post.

Naomi has missed grand slam tournaments in the past and hasn’t played at Wimbledon since before the Covid pandemic in 2019.

She also withdrew from the French Open in 2021 for mental health reasons after opening up on her depression battle since the 2018 US Open.
