“I know that I have so much to look forward to in the future,” Osaka wrote in a post that included her sonogram. “One thing I’m looking forward to is for my kid to watch one of my matches and tell someone, ‘That’s my mom.’ 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 nest one ’cause I’ll be at Aus 2024. Love you all infinitely.”
