Naomi Osaka, former world number one from Japan, has been struggling to be at her best form since the past year due to constant injuries which force her to skip some tournaments. Her inconsistent form has been seen with her early-round exits at the tournaments, her latest defeat being at the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic to Coco Gauff in the second round of the event. She was forced to withdraw from the first-round match against Kaia Kanepi at the Canadian Open due to her back injury which worsened as the match went deeper.

Four-time Grand Slam champion Osaka won her last Grand Slam title at the 2021 Australian Open and her search for another title win still continues. Post her withdrawal, she will take the time to get recovered and be fit to play while trying her hands at winning another title at the US Open where she is a two-time champion. She has been upfront regarding equal importance to mental health issues along with physical fitness which has prompted many other players to be vocal about such matters.
