French Open 2020 : Naomi Osaka Pulls Out With Hamstring Injury

US Open Champion Naomi Osaka has pulled out of the French Open, which is scheduled to start on 27 September.

The Japanese player won her second us open, and third grand slam title, with a 1-6 6-3 6-3 victory over Victoria Azarenka in New York.

Osaka said in a statement she won't be able to play at the French Open.

She said her hamstring is still sore so she won't have enough time to prepare for the clay.

The 22-year-old had her left hamstring wrapped in tape when she beat Azarenka in the final at flushing Meadows.

The World Number three, who won the Australian Open in 2019, has never gone beyond the third round at Roland Garros.
