‘Get well soon’: Tennis fans saddened by Naomi Osaka announcement

Tennis fans are sending their well-wishes to Naomi Osaka after the Japanese star was forced to withdraw from the Italian Open this week ahead of Roland Garros.



The four-time grand slam champion suffered an achilles injury in her opening match at the Madrid Open earlier this month, before struggling in a second-round loss to Sara Sorribes Tormo.



The 24-year-old announced on Monday night that the injury hadn’t healed enough to play in Rome and she was taking every precaution to be fit for the French Open.



“Unfortunately I’m going to have to withdraw from Rome as the injury which I picked up last week in Madrid hasn’t healed yet,” Osaka said in a statement.

“It’s an Achilles injury so I need to be careful, especially in advance of Roland Garros.”
