As reported by the Italian website Gazzetta dello Sport, Naomi Osaka was photographed in New York, with her mother Tamaki, in oversized clothes, in the photos released by the gossip sites TMZ and Just Jared. The Japanese, engaged to rapper Cordae, should return to the court for the Australian Open 2024.

Naomi Osaka’s pregnancy
On her social media channel, Naomi told: “I can’t wait to get back on the pitch; in the meantime here’s an update on my 2023.
The last few years have been interesting to say the least, but I find those are the hardest moments in life. which can prove to be the most enjoyable. These months away from the world of tennis have really given me a new love and made me appreciate the sport I have dedicated my life to.
I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moment for granted , every day is a new blessing and adventure.cI know I have so much to look forward to in the future, one thing I look forward to is for my son to watch one of my games and tell someone that’s my mom.
2023 will be a year full of lessons for me and I hope to see you all early next year as I will be at the Australian Open 2024. I love you all infinitely. I don’t think there is a perfectly correct path to take in life, but I’ve always thought that if you carry on with good intentions you will eventually find your way.” The last season of the Japanese player had disappointed many tennis fans and sounded the alarm in view of her potential premature retirement, but the four-time Grand Slam champion has found a way to reassure her fans in the message that she made public her pregnancy.
Osaka played her last match in Tokyo last September, when she was forced to raise the white flag due to an abdominal problem, and played eleven tournaments in 2022. Only at the WTA 1000 in Miami did she manage to reach the the final; her final then lost against current world number one Iga Swiatek. Photo Credits: Pic by Gazzetta dello Sport
