Organizers announced Wednesday that Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka, who has missed the last two Grand Slam tournaments, will perform at the US Open. The starting line-up includes Serbian Novak Djokovic, Spaniard Rafael Nadal and Swiss Roger Federer.
Osaka, who lives in the United States, did not compete in the recently concluded Wimbledon for the third Grand Slam this year. When he withdrew from the French Open on May 31, he did not appear in court claiming he was suffering from depression.
Prior to the Paris match, he announced that he would not be attending press conferences because he wanted to draw attention to mental health issues in this way. He was fined $ 15,000 for missing a post-match meeting with journalists.

The eyes will be primarily on Djokovic, who has won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon this season, so he has a “Gold Slam” chance, which includes four Grand Slam matches and victories at the Olympics. To finish it off, the tennis player from Belgrade missed out on an Olympic gold medal and a win at the US Open, which takes place in New York in August and September.
German Steffi Graf in 1988 was the only tennis player in tennis history to win five of these events in one season.
