"I can't wait to get back on the court; In the meantime, here's an update on my 2023. The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find it's the hardest times in life that can be the most fun. These months away from the world of tennis have really given me a new love and made me appreciate the sport to which I have dedicated my life. I realize life is so short and I don't take any moment for granted, every day is a new blessing and adventure. I know I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I can't wait is for my son to watch one of my games, and tell someone: that's my mom. 2023 will be a year full of lessons for me and I hope to see you all early next year as I will be at the Australian Open 2024. I love you all infinitely. I don't think there is one perfectly correct path to take in life, but I've always thought that if you carry on with good intentions you will eventually find your way." With these words, Naomi Osaka shared on Instagram her pregnancy!
Naomi Osaka is pregnant!
In fact, the Japanese thrilled the tennis world and she announced, through her Instagram account, that she was pregnant. The Japanese player's last season had disappointed many tennis fans and raised the alarm in view of her potential premature retirement, but the four-time Grand Slam champion found a way to reassure her fans in the message that she made her pregnancy public her.
Osaka played her last match in Tokyo last September, when she was forced to raise the white flag due to an abdominal problem, and played eleven tournaments in 2022. Only at the WTA 1000 in Miami did she manage to reach the final; her final then lost against current world number one Iga Swiatek.
