WTA Tokyo: Daria Saville comforted by Naomi Osaka's beautiful hug

Only one game lasted the match between Naomi Osaka and Daria Saville. The latter, after having placed her leg badly on a forehand in mid-court, felt pain in her knee, remaining on the ground without the possibility of moving from there.

After the help of doctors and the Japanese tennis player herself, who tried to help her opponent, the Russian-Australian tennis player was forced to retire.

Therefore, Daria Saville could do nothing but retire.

Naomi Osaka, however, wanted to be there by her side and before leaving the field, she showed her support with a hug. As Osaka learned she had made it to the second round of the tournament, where she awaits Haddad Maia, Saville updated on her condition on her Twitter: "Pray she's not ACL."
