Naomi Osaka Poised for Comeback at 2024 Australian Open

Naomi Osaka Poised for Comeback at 2024 Australian Open 

Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, who took a break from tennis after giving birth to her daughter Shai in July, has announced her intention to make a comeback for the 2024 Australian Open.

She expressed how her break from the sport has reignited her passion for tennis. Osaka, now 25 years old, made her last tournament appearance at the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo in September 2022.

During an ESPN interview at the US Open on Wednesday, Osaka confirmed her presence in Melbourne at the beginning of the upcoming year with a simple “yes” response.

Naomi Osaka, who recently engaged in a mental health discussion alongside swimming legend Michael Phelps at Flushing Meadows, expressed her anticipation for a full-time return to the women’s tennis tour in 2024.

She acknowledged that she plans to participate in more tournaments than before, recognising the need to ease back into competition due to uncertainties about her form at the beginning of the year. This strategic approach aims to set her up for a strong finish to the season.

Despite once holding the top-ranked position in the world in 2019, Osaka’s current ranking stands at 603rd.

She has achieved significant success in her career, boasting four Grand Slam singles titles with victories at the Australian Open in 2019 and 2021, as well as the US Open in 2018 and 2020.
