PARIS, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- US Open champion Naomi Osaka has pulled out of the French Open, which is to take place from September 27 to October 11, because of a hamstring injury, as the Japanese star tweeted on Friday.
"We face the world's best team, and you can say it is one of the hardest games you can start with. But still, it's a game, and this gives you the chance to achieve some points," the striker told Xinhua in an interview.
The withdrawal of Osaka meant that two of the current world's top three women's players would not play at Roland Garros this year, as reigning champion and world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty already announced earlier this month that she would not be able to participate the clay major due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
