Naomi Osaka Nursing Knee Injury Days Before US Open

Naomi Osaka is nursing a knee injury just days before the first round of play in the US Open.

According to CNN, Osaka was forced to retire from the Cincinnati Masters on Friday due to her injury.

Osaka, who is the first player from Japan to win a major, quit in the third set of her quarterfinal match against American Sofia Kenin.

"My pain tolerance is really high, that's usually why I play through things that apparently I shouldn't".
