ANKARA

US Open winner Naomi Osaka has pulled out of the French Open over a hamstring injury.

“Unfortunately I won’t be able to play the French Open this year,” Osaka said on social media late Thursday.

“My hamstring is still sore so I won’t have enough time to prepare for the clay – these 2 tournaments came too close to each other for me this time.”

The 22-year-old Japanese player won the US Open on Saturday after defeating Victoria Azarenka 1-6, 6-3, and 6-3 in the final.

The French Open will take place in Paris from Sept. 27 to Oct. 11.
