“I realize that life is so short and I don’t take any moments for granted, everyday is a new blessing and adventure,” Osaka wrote in a note attached to the post, which included an ultrasound photo. “I know that I have much to look forward to in the future, one thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, ‘that’s my mom,’ haha. 2023 will be a year that’ll be full of lessons for me and I hope I’ll see you guys in the start of the next one cause I’ll be at [Australian Open] 2024.”
Osaka is a two-time Australian Open champion, and she withdrew from the competition earlier this week.
Osaka is the highest paid female athlete at $51.1 million, according to Forbes.
Upon her return, she’ll be one of several pro tennis mothers competing on tour.
