Naomi Osaka Exits Wimbledon Early; Coco Gauff Advances

Naomi Osaka’s return to Wimbledon ended abruptly as she lost to American Emma Navarro 6-4, 6-1 in the second round. Osaka, playing at Wimbledon for the first time since 2019, struggled with confidence and form. She plans to focus on the Paris Olympics after her early exit. Despite a strong first-round win, she admitted doubts crept into her game against Navarro.

Osaka, ranked No. 113, returned to the tour in January after giving birth to her daughter. She aims to train for the Olympics, where she hopes to perform well on the clay courts of Roland Garros.

Meanwhile, Coco Gauff impressed with a dominant 6-2, 6-1 win over Romanian qualifier Anca Todoni. Gauff, working on her serve, displayed confidence and power, hitting a serve at 124mph. Her positive attitude and improved game make her a strong contender moving forward.

Other notable matches included Elina Svitolina’s hard-fought win over Magda Linette and Danielle Collins’ victory against Clara Tauson.
