Bad news from Naomi Osaka as the world no.1 had to renounce to play the Qatar Open next week.

The Japanese would have been seeded no.1 in Doha. However, she is not going to lose many points since last year she lost in the 2nd round at the hands of Anastasija Sevastova after she had to play the qualifications.

Naomi’s problems to her back

This is not the first time that Naomi had to withdraw because of a back problem as she pulled out from Hong Kong last year for the very same reason.

I am very sorry to withdraw. OSAKA

Naomi commented

“I am sorry to have withdrawn from Doha this year as I was looking forward to playing and seeing my fans there.

I wish everyone a great week and hope to see everyone next year.”
