“If there’s one thing I really want, it’s for my kid to see one of my games and then say to someone, ‘This is my mom,'” the 25-year-old Japanese man tweeted. 2023 will be a year of lessons for me and I hope to see you again early next year as I will be attending the Australian Open in 2024.”

A four-time Grand Slam winner, Osaka has not played a competitive game since withdrawing from the Tokyo tournament in September due to a stomach ache.

She also spoke about her mental health issues and spent the whole of 2022 outside of the top 10, suffering first-round losses at Roland Garros and the US Open. The Japanese had withdrawn from Wimbledon due to an Achilles heel injury.

In 2021, she made headlines when she retired from Roland-Garros after announcing she would not be doing a press conference to preserve her sanity.

After a brilliant rise, the tennis queen with a shy personality had concealed her weaknesses until then.

Already revered in Japan, her native country in the city that bears her name, she had eventually become the muse around the world, the highest-paid female athlete in the world and, in 2020, the spokesperson for the movement against racism.
