Naomi Osaka is back in Brisbane, Australia, as she prepares to make her highly anticipated return to tennis. The former world number one welcomed her daughter Shai into the world in July with her boyfriend, Cordae.
On Wednesday, the athlete shared a video from her time at practice with her 2.7 million followers on Instagram. The 26-year-old Japanese tennis player looks strong, fast, and ready to compete.
The Australian Open will see the best tennis stars in the world, like Coco Gauff, compete with each other for the title. Angelique Kerber, also a former WTA number 1, will be making a comeback after welcoming her child in 2023.
Rafael Nadal will also make his anticipated return to Brisbane after his torturous injury a year ago at the Australian Open. He underwent surgery in June and said he would return when he was at the caliber to win.
