MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022 final results

Naomi Osaka won her first match in .. awhile on Tuesday as opponent Daria Saville tore her ACL on a seemingly innocuous forehand in the second game of their match.

So there was no way of telling what kind of form she was in, ahead of a clash with thepowerful Beatriz Haddad Maia in her second-round match.

Well …. it never happened. Osaka pulled out of the tournament before the match, citing illness/abdominal pain.
