Surprised tennis player Naomi Osaka is ready to wear her French Open retreat and decide to skip Wimbledon behind her, picking up friends this week for a much-needed getaway.
The 23-year-old tennis professional and his close team of pals were located exiting $ 7M Beverly Hills home Friday with several bags and suitcases in tow. Osaka packed his Louis Vuitton luggage into an SUV while wearing comfortable duds for the trip.
The athlete wore a white-tee trim, black stockings, a baseball cap and glasses, as well as a pair of Beats by Dre headphones.
After pulling out of the French Open, Osaka also decided to pass on participating in Wimbledon.
“Naomi won’t be playing Wimbledon this year,” a statement from her team read. “She takes some personal time with friends and family. She will be ready for the Olympics and she is excited to play in front of her home fans.”
Apparently, Wimbledon reached out to him in an attempt to get him on board for the London tournament, saying he was “completely open to any discussion” to no avail.
While some, like tennis legend Boris Becker, came down on Osaka to pull out of the French Open, others, like actor Will Smith, supported his decision.
Even Meghan Markle contacted the Prodigy to offer her support, as she understood the mental health toll one can take in the spotlight.
