Naomi Osaka Suffers Shocking Loss in Third Round of Tokyo Olympics, Loses Bid for Medal

Naomi Osaka is out of the Tokyo Olympics after a shocking loss in the third round of the tennis tournament.

The 23-year-old tennis player, who was playing for Team Japan, lost to Czech Republic’s Marketa Vondrousova in straight sets on Tuesday (July 27) in Tokyo, Japan.

Naomi, who was born in Japan and grew up in the United States, was ranked second and lost 6-1, 6-4 against Marketa, who was ranked 42nd.

Ahead of the Olympics, Naomi exited the French Open and skipped Wimbledon amid her concerns for her mental health and the policies for having to speak to the media during the tournaments.

In addition to Naomi, the tennis tournament’s top seed player Ashleigh Barty and No. 3 seed player Aryna Sabalenka have been eliminated already as well.

Naomi was chosen as the person to light the Olympic cauldron during the opening ceremony last week.
