Two years ago, Naomi Osaka was probably the biggest name on the WTA tour. The Japanese ace was consistent at winning titles and it made her an intimidating opponent. However, she took a break for the birth of her first child and now when Osaka has made a comeback, that potency is gone. The 26-year-old has lost two out of the three matches played so far.
While Osaka managed to survive till the second round at her comeback tournament- Brisbane International, she had a first-round exit at the 2024 Australian Open. Osaka lost to Caroline Garcia in straight sets. Nevertheless, despite such a rough start to the season, Osaka backs herself to bounce back.
