Naomi Osaka, who completed a stunning run to the Indian Wells title last month, revealed that she was struggling mentally following her third-round loss in Charleston.

“Yesterday I woke up and I was really depressed, but I don’t know why,” the Japanese 20-year-old said in a candid press conference.

“Like, I’m so sad right now.”

Osaka discussed her feelings in more detail in a report in the Post & Courier, a Charleston newspaper.

After winning at Indian Wells, she reached the second round in Miami and won two matches in Charleston before falling to Julia Goerges in straight sets on Thursday.
