Osaka to take part in the Olympics, skips Wimbledon


Naomi Osaka will not play at Wimbledon this year, but will take part in the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The four-time grand slam champion is taking some personal time with friends and family but is planning to return at the Olympics and is “excited to play in front of her home fans”.

The 23-year-old Japanese has not played since withdrawing from the French Open after the first round, saying she needed a break for her mental health.
