Former world number one Naomi Osaka says she has gone through "more downs than ups" this year.
The 24-year-old from Japan has not won a title since last year's Australian Open
and has been defeated in the first round of her past three tournaments.
A 4-time Grand Slam winner, she has dropped to 48th in the rankings going into Pan Pacific Open.
"This year has not been the best year for me but I've learned a lot about myself," Osaka said.
Osaka is defending her title at the Pan Pacific Open, an event which returns after a three-year.
