Naomi Osaka withdraws from Stuttgart with abdominal injury

Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from her semi-final match against Anett Kontaveit later today with an abdominal injury.

The world number one was up a set in her last match out against Donna Vekic before fighting back from 1-5 0-30 in the final set to complete her comeback but her tournament will go no further.

In her press yesterday after the match she didn’t give any indication of their being a problem but has decided not to play tonight meaning Kontaveit advances through to the Stuttgart final.

The target now will be getting fit for Madrid following her first two matches of the clay court season against Hsieh and Vekic before having to pull out.
