Japanese woman Naomi Osaka commented on her decision to withdraw from the tournament in Rome.
“In the morning I woke up and realized that I didn’t feel a thumb on my hand. I tried to train, but I couldn’t even take the racket properly. My arm ached in different places. I wanted to play today. A match with Kiki would be an excellent test of my strength, because she plays great. It makes me sad.
Yesterday I had no problems with my hand, so I am discouraged. I really couldn’t move my thumb. At first I thought that I was lying in my sleep and it would soon pass, but this did not happen. I can not say that the whole season consists of ups and downs, because I am constantly improving. I get experience and apply it. But injuries annoy me. I don’t know why this is happening, “the WTA press service quotes Osaka as saying.
