Naomi Osaka targets eight more Majors and Paris 2024 Olympics gold medal
Naomi Osaka had been grappling with her performance for over a year before going on maternity leave. However, the four-time Grand Slam champion has already set her sights on achieving ambitious goals for a highly anticipated comeback.
During an interview with Japanese TV, Osaka conveyed her determination to persistently compete at the highest level. Her goal is to add eight more Grand Slam titles to her current tally of four. Moreover, she has set her sights on winning the coveted gold medal at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
"I really want to play again, when I found out I was pregnant I said to myself, 'Okay, after that, I will definitely play better'. I am convinced that this baby will inspire me to try even harder and give my best," Osaka said.
"I want to win eight more Grand Slams and try to win the gold medal at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. It's one of the goals that excites me the most about returning to sport. I took a break, but I always feel very competitive and full of desire to win the most important tournaments in my sport again," she added.
Naomi Osaka's most recent appearance was at the 2022 Japan Open in September. However, she was unfortunately forced to withdraw from the Round of 16 due to an injury. Her last title was at the 2021 Australian Open, where she emerged victorious in the final against Jennifer Brady.
