Tennis Championship: After withdrawing from the US Open in September, Naomi Osaka’s attendance in Melbourne underlines her ambition to return to professional tennis.

After casting doubt on her future in September, Naomi Osaka arrived at Melbourne airport on Tuesday, signalling her intention to return to professional tennis.

The defending Australian Open women’s singles champion was defeated in the third round of the US Open by eventual runner-up Leylah Fernandez, an 18-year-old Canadian.

The 24-year-old Japanese athlete has flown to Australia and is ready to defend her title after a heartbreaking announcement that she would be taking an indefinite vacation from the sport to focus on her mental health.

Osaka hasn’t played on the circuit since September when she withdrew from the French Open and missed Wimbledon entirely.

In 2019, Osaka won the Australian Open for the second time, defeating American Jennifer Brady to capture her fourth Grand Slam championship.

COVID-19 tests are administered to all players arriving for the Australian Open, and they must isolate until they receive a negative result.
