Naomi Osaka’s title defense at her home Pan Pacific Open ended on Thursday when the former world number one pulled out ahead of her second-round match against Beatriz Haddad Maia due to abdominal pain.

Osaka had reached the second round after her own first-round opponent, Daria Saville, retired injured in only the second game of the match.
