However, yesterday, the 30th of July, Osaka took to her Twitter handle, sending a sigh of relief to these fans. “Just went through my old notes from last year…wow I’m basically a whole different person now lol,” she wrote.

Apart from this tweet, Osaka’s relief from mental health issues is also visible on her Instagram handle. Prior to getting back on the court, Osaka took some time off to heal her wounds. Being an active social media user, she took to her Instagram, giving a glimpse of who she was.

However, things took an unpleasant turn when she declined to attend the post-match press conference after her first-round win. After she was fined for the same, she pulled out, not only from the French Open but also from the rest of the season, in a sensational decision that polarized the tennis world. Opening up about the reason for Osaka’s withdrawal, her agent asserted that she wants to have some personal time with friends and family.

Her next breakdown came early this year after a third-round Australian Open exit. Similar to the 2021 French Open, Osaka took some time off from the tour. She finally made her comeback at the 2022 Indian Wells.
