Naomi Osaka will not play at Wimbledon, says report

Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from Wimbledon 2022, the tennis player appears to confirm on Saturday, after BBC reported the news.

This will be the third year in a row that the Japanese player will miss Wimbledon. The tournament was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then she skipped the 2021 championships to spend time with the family before the Tokyo Olympics.

The 24-year-old has not played since the French Open in which she lost the first round, as she continues to recover from an Achilles tendon injury. Osaka recently posted a video of her running on an underwater treadmill to show how far she has come. This injury reportedly caused her to withdraw from the basal court major as well.
