US Open winner Naomi Osaka has pulled out of the French Open over a hamstring injury.
"Unfortunately I won't be able to play the French Open this year," Osaka said on social media late Thursday.
"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."
The 22-year-old Japanese player won the US Open on Saturday after defeating Victoria Azarenka 1-6, 6-3, and 6-3 in the final.
The French Open will take place in Paris from Sept. 27 to Oct. 11.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form. Please contact us for subscription options.
