Osaka and Krejcikova withdraw from Dubai Tennis Championships

Posted : 16 February 2024

Naomi Osaka and Barbora Krejcikova, both prominent figures in women's tennis, have opted to withdraw from the Dubai Tennis Championships. Osaka, a four-time Grand Slam champion, has been striving to regain her form since returning to the tour last month following a maternity break.


Unfortunately, she faced early exits in the Australian Open, Abu Dhabi, and the Qatar Open, where she lost in the quarterfinals to Karolina Pliskova. Osaka expressed regret in a statement, citing her withdrawal from the Dubai tournament.


Barbora Krejcikova, the defending champion and former French Open winner, has also decided to pull out of the Dubai Tennis Championships due to a back injury. Krejcikova secured her maiden Dubai title last year by defeating world No. 1 Iga Swiatek.


Despite the challenge of relinquishing her title, the Czech player emphasized the necessity of providing her back with additional healing time. She expressed commitment to returning stronger in the subsequent year.


Osaka's withdrawal comes after a series of recent struggles on the court, seeking to find her rhythm since returning to professional tennis.


Meanwhile, Krejcikova's decision reflects a focus on long-term health, prioritizing recovery and preparing for future competitions. The absence of these accomplished players adds an element of unpredictability to the Dubai Tennis Championships.
