Tennis star Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from Wimbledon due to an Achilles injury.
According to CNN, the 24-year-old was placed on Wimbledon’s withdraw list Saturday, citing a leg injury.
Osaka explained on Twitter that her Achilles “still isn’t right,” CBS Sports reports.
“I feel like life keeps dealing cards and you’re never gonna be used to them,” Osaka wrote, “but it’s how you adapt to uncomfortable situations that really says stuff about your character.”
The tennis star has been struggling with injuries for the past two months. In early May she was dealing with an ankle injury. She returned to the French open that month but lost in the first round to Amanda Anisimova.
Despite her struggle with injury, Osaka wrote in her post that she was “grateful” for all of the people in her life.
It is unclear when she will return to competition.
