Japan's former women's No. 1 and four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka will not compete at Wimbledon, citing injury, the tournament's organizers said Saturday.
The 24-year-old Osaka, a two-time winner at both the U.S. and Australian opens and currently ranked 43rd, said she had an Achilles tendon injury, according to the All England Club.
She crashed out of May's French Open in the first round, and had been dealing with pain in her left ankle since before competing in Paris.
Osaka has previously indicated she might not compete this year after the grass-court major was stripped of its ranking points by the men's ATP and the women's WTA tours.
The ATP and WTA tours made that decision after the All England Club banned Russian and Belarussian players over their nations' involvement in the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
