iciHaiti - Tennis : Naomi Osaka still World Number 1
Haitian-Japanese Naomi Osaka, the star of world tennis, despite her early elimination in the second round of the Dubai tournament in February, against the French Kristina Mladenovic [6-3, 6-3] and her abandonment at the WTA tournament of Doha in Qatar (February 11-16), because of back pains hhttps://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-26859-icihaiti-tennis-suffering-from-the-back-naomi-osaka-forfeits-the-doha-tournament.html , still remains at the top of the WTA Women's World Ranking with 6,871 points.

TOP 5 in the world ranking, women :


1- Naomi Osaka: 6,871 points
2- Simona Halep: 5,727 points
3- Petra Kvitova: 5.605 points
4- Sloane Stephens: 5,307 points
5- Karolína Pliškova: 5,145 points

Moreover, Naomi, who will turn 22 on October 16th, will have an important decision to make. Indeed, Japanese law stipulates that its citizens must choose in their 21st year concerning their nationality, since Japan does not allow a double passport beyond this age.

Recall that Naomi was born in Japan from a Haitian father and a Japanese mother, but grew up in the United States. By October, she will have to decide if she wants to play for Japan or the USA. However, it seems unlikely because of his attachment to his country of birth that she chooses to represent the United States.
