No official reason has been given for his withdrawal from Indian Wells, which is one of the last two big events on the 2021 calendar along with the WTA season-ending Finals in Mexico.
Osaka slipped out of the world top five this week, falling to 8th in the WTA rankings.
Speaking after her shock loss to Leylah Fernandez at the US Open, the 23-year-old said: “It’s very difficult to express. Basically I feel like I’m at this point where I’m trying to figure out what I want to do, and honestly, I don’t know when I’m going to play my next tennis match. Sorry.
“I think I’ll take a break from playing for a while. How can I say that? I feel like recently, when I win, I don’t feel happy. I feel more like a relief. And then when I lose, I feel very sad. I don’t think this is normal. I didn’t really want to cry.
Indian Wells was rescheduled from its usual location in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic and is expected to feature most of the best players in the world. It will run from October 4 to 17 and will be operating at full capacity.
Opinion: No more multiple major winners, but Barty’s 2021 season should be more respected
