Naomi Osaka has an "itch" to play tennis again

Four times Grand Slam Winner Naomi Osaka stated that she wants to play tennis again and has an “itch” to return. Naomi last played in the US Open and lost to Leylah Fernandez in the third round. Osama took a break earlier this year, withdrawing from both Wimbledon and French Open. She also declared that she is going to be on a break after losing to Leylah in the US Open.

I know I'm going to play again. I kind of have that itch again. It wouldn't really matter to me if I won or lost, I'd just have the joy of being back on the court. I used to love the competition and just being competitive. "If I were to play a long match, the longer it was the more fun it was for me. I just started to feel recently the longer it was the more stressed out I became, but I just needed a break to go within myself.
