Naomi Osaka, who announced her withdrawal from tennis during the US Open, has withdrawn from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells next month.

After falling in the third round of the year’s final major, the four-time Grand Slam champion told reporters she needed the break to focus on her mental health.

Osaka has struggled on the court since withdrawing from the French Open in May due to a disagreement with tournament administrators about mandatory media appearances, which she said had a negative impact on her performance.

In 2018, the 23-year-old Japanese player claimed her maiden WTA title in Indian Wells.

The tournament remarked on Twitter, “We look forward to seeing you in 2022, Naomi.”
