Naomi Osaka began 2021 on a great note 

Reflecting on tennis, Osaka won her fourth Grand Slam title in Melbourne this year. Prior to that, she lifted the US Open in the previous season. However, things have not gone according to the Japanese players’ plans in recent times.

Just before her opening round match at the French Open this year, Osaka revealed that she would not take part in post-match press conferences. Her decision was due to the fact she was dealing with mental illness.

After her decision wasn’t well-received by the audiences and the tennis world, she decided to withdraw from the tournament before her second-round match. She skipped Wimbledon and didn’t create an impact at the Olympics in Tokyo.

However, she will be seen at the US Open where she will be defending her title. We wish her the very best for the upcoming matches.
