Defending US Open champion Naomi Osaka moved into the third round of the 2021 US Open after Serbia’s Olga Danilovic withdrew from the tournament with a medical issue.
“I am so sad to have to withdrawal from my match this morning. I have been feeling unwell these past few days dealing with a non-COVID related viral illness,” Danilovic wrote on Instagram. “I was really looking forward to playing against Naomi on Arthur Ashe Stadium today, but not to be this time. I just want to say big thank you to the medical stuff [sic] here in US Open and everyone for your support, and I cannot wait to be back in New York at this amazing tournament next year.”
