TOKYO (AP) — Defending champion Naomi Osaka withdrew from the Pan Pacific Open forward of her second-round fit because of sickness on Thursday.
“I am really sorry that I am not able to compete today,” Osaka stated in a observation. “It’s an honor to be able to play at the Toray Pan Pacific Open in front of the amazing fans here in Japan. This has and always will be a special tournament for me and I wish I could have stepped on court, but my body won’t let me. I will see you next year.”
