Naomi Osaka, Bianca Andreescu to kick off grass court season at Libema Open

Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka made her return to the WTA tour earlier this year following maternity leave. After competing on hard courts and clay, the Japanese superstar will kick off her grass court campaign at the 2024 Libema Open s-Hertogenbosch this summer.
The Libema Open is a WTA 250 event, slated to run from June 8-16, 2024. The tournament will be Osaka's first grass court event in five years, with her last appearance being the 2019 Wimbledon Championships. The former World No.1 had been out of action for 15 months, giving birth to her daughter Shai in July 2023. Osaka returned to the WTA in January 2024, and will be making her debut at the Libema Open.
Another Grand Slam champion will feature at the popular grass court tournament, as Bianca Andreescu has also been confirmed for the event. The 2019 US Open champion had been dealing with injuries since August 2023. However, she returned to the WTA tour in time for the clay court season, and will look to get some warm ups on grass in s-Hertogenbosch prior to Wimbledon.
Americans Jessica Pegula and Emma Navarro were also recently announced for the event. Navarro has been having a breakout season this year and sits just outside the top 20 in the WTA Rankings.
