The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “US Open: Naomi Osaka in tears as she says she will ‘take a break’ from tennis after loss” – below is their description.

A tearful Naomi Osaka said she does not know when she will play again, raising more concern about her mental health struggles on Friday after an emotional display during a third round defeat at the US Open.

Osaka, who has been a picture of composure on the court during her career, erupted in frustration during a 5-7 7-6 (2) 6-4 loss to 18-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandez that ended her Open title defence.

The four-time Grand Slam champion, who quit the French Open earlier this year after saying she would not attend press conferences for her mental health, did not try to dodge the media on Friday, answering questions until breaking into tears.

She said: “This is very hard to articulate. Basically I feel like I’m kind of at this point where I’m trying to figure out what I want to do, and I honestly don’t know when I’m going to play my next tennis match. Sorry.”
