Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from Wimbledon to take some personal time with friends and family, her agent said in a statement Thursday.

It’s the third straight tournament Osaka has pulled out of due to personal reasons. 

Osaka withdrew from the second round of the French Open in May after she was fined for skipping a required post-match interview. Earlier in June, Osaka withdrew from the Berlin WTA 5000 grass-court tournament.

Osaka’s agent said she will play in the Olympics, which starts July 24 in Tokyo.

  1. Why don’t the italians talk about he slaves in Brazil in Palmares, Decide, Porto Allegre, all these black revolutionises could not guarantee freedom for the blacks who were tortured, raped, murdered under their command.Dessalines lost his life for ingrates, political opportunists with no relationship to him, so they can peacefully on this Earth.The United States was not invented or founded by those who claim it as their own, they brought the Africans here for their own greedy needs,but one thing Dessalines prove them wrong,is that we would not be disapperearing like the Iroquois, Arawaks without a fight. Even those who they use such as the colloraborators in their perpetual can testify to their heinousness.
