“Basically, I feel like I’m a little bit at this point where I’m trying to figure out what I want to do, and I honestly don’t know when I’m going to play my next tennis game,” Osaka said. “I think I’m taking a break from playing for a while.”

Osaka has struggled with his mental health. She withdrew from the French Open before her second-round match in May, skipping Wimbledon. She lost at the Olympics in her home country Japan and in the round of 16 to the Western & Southern Open before the US Open.

In the US Open, Osaka advanced to the third round via walkover after her second-round opponent retired with illness. She defeated Marie Bouzkova in the first round on Monday.
