Shock withdrawal as Tennis star Naomi Osaka pulls out of Wimbledon with an Achilles injury
The Japanese star has confirmed she will not be competing in the iconic grasscourt tournament.
The 24-year-old has now been placed on the withdrawal list, which will see her out of the event that is scheduled to begin on June 27.
It’s been a rough few years for the four-time grand slam champion, after citing an ankle injury in May which forced her out of the French Open.
Previously, Osaka also took a break from the game to focus on her mental wellbeing.
New business venture
While Osaka’s future on the court might be on hold, she is steaming ahead with her newest business venture.
She has launched a sports agency called ‘Evolve’ with her long-time agent Stuart Duguid. They want the agency to be “focused on brand partnerships, investing, creating athlete-owned businesses and philanthropy”.
Now, Australian tennis icon Nick Kyrgios has just confirmed he will be signing up as the first athlete. Let’s just say he’s pretty happy with the announcement.
Duguid and Osaka believe that Kyrgios embodies what ‘Evolve’ is about. Many people have been speculating that Kyrgios and Osaka would team up, and now it’s official.

China hides maskless crowd by editing World Cup broadcast
China has made an effort to hide the rest of the world from its citizens by editing out crowd scenes from World Cup coverage
A China coverup has come to light as the country attempts to censor its World Cup broadcast.
Protests against China’s strict zero-covid strategy are engulfing its major cities, as Chinese TV feeds are edited to steer clear of crowd scenes.
State television removed camera shots of maskless crowd goers and instead shows closeups of coaches and players.
This has its citizens questioning why the rest of the world is getting on with normality, while they remain under strict lockdown.
The World Cup comes at a turbulent time for China, as millions remain shut away from the rest of the world.
It also comes just weeks after Xi Jinping secured a third term, with many are now demanding an end to his rein.
