Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka has announced she is pregnant.

The Japanese former world number one, 25, withdrew from the Australian Open earlier this week, having not played since September.

Osaka won the last of her four Grand Slams at the Australian Open in 2021.

However, she has spoken of the problems she has faced since that memorable title win. “Can’t wait to get back on the court but here’s a little life update for 2023,” read Osaka’s caption.

She said: “The past few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find that its the most challenging times in life that may be the most fun. These few months away from the sport has really given me a new love and appreciation for the game I’ve dedicated my life to. “I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moment for granted, everyday is a new blessing and adventure. I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch my matches and tell someone, ‘that’s my mom’.”
