The calendar of professional tennis is quite crazy, and good for her to adjust the schedule and avoid excessive fatigue and injuries. Lower ranked players really have no choice, the need to play lots of matches and they also have to make some money, but for her that's not the case

I agree with timeon 100%. The 11-month pro tennis schedule is grueling, and needs to be fixed to improve the players' personal lives, as well as their physical and mental health. Good on Osaka for being smart about it, even if it's a nontraditional route.
