Not surprising, given that she has a heavilly taped left leg, as far as i know it was an achilles injury again. Now her participation at RG is truly now a doubt. She is now race against time to be fit for RG, where she'll unseeded, considering seeded or not does not make much difference aside maybe getting better draws? Oh, by the way, she has suffered achilles injury before, like in 2020, where RG was moved after the USO, essenssially in part of the year where there SHOULD BE NO clay court events. Now she is replaced by a Lucky loser in form of Spain's Nuria Parrizaz Diaz, the oldest Spanish woman in top 100

lol my quote from last week when she was playing SST in Madrid :oh:

of course , it can be a legit injury , but I like being bitchy now and then
The same achilles injury she suffered in 2020 Us Open? At the time i've seen her thigh was heavilly taped, so in another words, it's similar injury she suffered in 2020, albeit it's happened during RG, instead during NA HC swing... Not sure if Naomi has a dark sense of humor...

An Achillies injury or potential injury is very dangerous. Potential career ending if it actually tears. She has to be very careful.
Exactly. Better take some precaution and withdrew, otherwise if she plays with that kind of injury, she could make the injury even worse... Last year similar muscle injury nearly end Simona Halep's tennis career

Ohh nooo
What happened?
is Naomi Osaka injured?
Yep, she suffered an achilles injury. Similar injury she suffered two years ago, where she withdrew from RG, (at the time her thigh was heavilly taped), at the time where the clay slam was moved after the US Open final, in part of tennis calendar, where there shouldn't be any major clay court events, aside from ITF and challenger events, that is

Yeah, but hers due to lower back injury, so completely different kind of injury, unlike the achilles injury Naomi suffered, who will took Naomi a few tournaments to get match sharpness again, Clara's will likely months and months, possibly put her grass season in doubt. Wont be surprised if she won't be back on tour until NA HC swing... Get well soon ladies!

Osaka three months ago: I promise you guys, I will try harder on clay and play a full clay court season.

Osaka during the clay court season: this one match that I lost in one hour has left me emotionally and physically drained, see y’all in Cincinnati.
Well, we're not pass the grass season yet... But not trilled with wimby banning some of my faves guys and girls over absurd political reasons😡

Players withdrawing after draw made should get a ban from next tournament of the equivalent level

just messes it up for a lot of players
Including Iga who withdrew from Madrid at the last minute? She should be banned from entering Rome, right? Should it also applies on men's side too i guess

To be fair, this is not the first Naomi got injured. She suffered achilles injury during the lead up to 2020 Us Open, albeit it's on her right thigh, at the time, she almost lose to Vika in the final, 2020 is funny enough the year where RG was moved from its May slot to Aug, just after the final of Flushing Meadows, at that time it angers alot of players, both in the men's and the women's tennis. Even ATP and WTA are angry at RG's unilateral decision, now Wimbledon does unilateral move as well, again alot of players are angry, ATP and WTA are angry too, won't be shocked if ATP and WTA took ranking points off Wimbledon, which is a major that still like a month away? And turn it into "exibition event" basically, as exibition events does not have ranking points

Naomi cannot face another session of Sorribes Torment on clay. It's like being stretched on the rack!
She withdrew not because of afraid facing SST, it's because she's injured. Left achilles this time. Similar injury she suffered two years ago, albeit at that time was on her right thigh, instead of her left leg

I think she is gonna at least try to have a look at the draw. Both her and SST should be seeded in RG, so she won't need to worry about drawing her.
No, Naomi wont be seeded at RG, but SST could be seeded, but it's a long shot. She needs a deep run in Rome in order to have a chance to be seeded at RG, though. Doubt both players will get easy draw though, seeded or not

If Naomi is smart she asks for a wildcard in Strassbourg or Rabat but she probably will not :(
Funny enough Rabat is the only tournament Sakkari has won so far, albeit 3 yrs ago

And people wonder why the prize money isn't equal
It happens for so many years ago, the prize money gap between the men's (ATP) and the women's (WTA) side has improved somewhat, the gap would have bigger had not do to BJK not winning the in famous battle of the sex match, which she won in straight sets. So the prize money issues is not new, it happens long before the open era
