Osaka pulls out of Hong Kong Open with back injury

Naomi Osaka 'stressed out' by living up to US Open win

Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova, the World No. 20, upset Japan's Naomi Osaka, the eighth seed, 6-4, 6-4 win on Saturday to qualify for the China Open final.

Awaiting her in the final is another Grand Slam champion - second seed Caroline Wozniacki, who looked in total control as she defeated home favourite Wang Qiang 6-1, 6-3 in just one hour and 24 minutes.

And the world number 20 saw out the set in resounding fashion with an ace out wide, before carrying her momentum into the second with a break for 3-2 as Osaka erred on the forehand side.

US Open champion Naomi Osaka has pulled out of this week's Hong Kong Open to prevent aggravating a slight back injury, organizers said on Sunday.

"If you haven't won a Slam, they'll say, 'She hasn't won a slam'".

"I feel great being here". "I'm just thinking one match at a time, and it can only get harder from here".
