    Naomi Osaka withdraws from next month’s Indian Wells tourney


    Indian Wells, Calif. — Naomi Osaka pulled out of the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday, a move that was expected after she indicated following her U.S. Open loss this month that she planned to take another extended break from tennis.

    The withdrawal was announced by the official Twitter feed for the hard-court tournament at Indian Wells, which is scheduled for Oct. 4-17 after twice being delayed during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Osaka is a four-time Grand Slam champion who has been ranked No. 1 and is currently No. 8.

    She last played at the U.S. Open, where her title defense ended with a third-round loss to eventual runner-up Leylah Fernandez on Sept. 3.

    After that defeat, Osaka said: “I honestly don’t know when I’m going to play my next tennis match.”
