Ms Osaka has a net worth of $25 million at the age of 23. In the year of the pandemic I'll focus my sympathies to the everyday people who've worked on the frontlines fighting covid. The everyday people who've lost livelyhoods and more saddenly lives of loved ones. Millionaire celebrities and professional athletes need to get over themselves and their importance.

"For me, personally, how I deal with it was that I know every single person asking
me a question can't play as well as I can and never will,"
"So no matter what you say or what you write, you'll never light a candle to me.

Face saving move by osaka; she can't play on clay. Got wiped off court in Rome just a few weeks ago. This just makes her endorsement clients happier b/c she doesn't get bounced early in a Grand Slam.

This was predictable after the organizers' reaction yesterday. Very few took her statement seriously.
1:08 - "As a black woman, I have to say ..."

What does the reporter's skin color have to do with anything. Is this in any way about social justice?

The withdrawn of @Naomi Osaka from the WTA 2021 RG is the best solution to the issue, she created by refusing to attend press conferences, as any other ATP or WTA players do. Unless the WTA and ATP change the existing rules, every single player must comply with.
Naomi Osaka.. you absolute Beauty.. your brilliance and intelligence has dazzled the world. And continues to do so. Being sensitive to your own sensitivity is the rarest quality. You march on, girl. Now these pack-dogs will try to badger you.. fear not. Stay Strong. With Love and blessings from India.

Shame on the tennis "Authorities." Find a solution, give the athletes some options. Otherwise, tennis will lose millions of fans, and some of their best players.

I want to be smaller:
Love how every friggin thing must be analyzed and critiqued. Everyone must have a take. Who the hell cares if she didn't 'handle' it perfectly. She doesn't work for a PR firm. BTW, in a hilarious bit of irony, the Head Cheese at the French Open gave a statement to the media, and did not take questions.
She has the right and it's her choice to withdraw if she doesn't want to go under the rules. Good for her.
Wish her a speedy recovery, it's really for the best to take some time off. I think this whole thing could have been avoided if she communicated it a little better from the start. Just announcing something on twitter might look colder than it actually was.

I’m interested to hear what Billie Jean King has to say about her mid-tournament withdrawal.
And what John McEnroe and Chris Evert have to say.

Them criticizing how she responded is literally why she doesn’t want to speak to the media lmao. She’s still young, let her live, let her make decisions without fear of criticism. MENTAL HEALTH IS IMPORTANT!

.Dustin Brown lived out of his van so he could compete in European tournaments while his family was back in Jamaica. He strung players racquets to earn money.The guy really did it the hard way and earned his way into the pro tour. Osaka is acting like a spoiled brat....
All the attention this is getting is her worst nightmare. Time off is the right thing. I can totally empathize with her, but in the long run she will have to learn to get over this is she wants to be a professional athlete.
The press has had a smell of arrogance for a long time. Hopefully there'll be compromise from both athletes and the press in the near future.
You gotta look out for number one because not many others will . She is still young maybe a few years away from the sport is what she needs
She probably withdraw cause of her being threaten to ban from competing the grand slam. depression is just a good option for her exit.

Mental Health is real, there’s not an ideal time. I pray she gets the help and support she needs.
Hope the media gets off her back!!

Must watch Iga Swiatek interview during press conference at French Open after Naomi withdrawal and statement. Iga Swiatek, 20 years old, is so mature and admirable when ask about press conference pressure and Naomi.

BNP Paribas is a bank headquartered in Paris, the main sponsor of the French Open. One option is to voice your thoughts to BNP, the French Open committee, and to the ATP in London. People might decide to boycott BNP, the French Open, and the ATP tournaments.

I dont think she would have made it to final/semis anyway, . Paid millions to be a pro tennis player but cant take the heat. I guess she should just lay off the court till she is ready. Publicity and having to face the press is part of being a champion.

Yes, the rules of the forced player attendees have been outdated, and the official changes this model.

You take all the time you need, dear. Managers, publicists, tennis organization are looking out for the almighty buck. You stay strong and when you are ready, come back. We will all be waiting and cheering for you.
Private Brown
Private Brown:
She should have attended the press conference and answered “No comment” to each question or request. She seriously has some issues and instead of threats of fines and expulsion, they should be trying to help her resolve those issues. Why are the other grand slams making threats and those tournaments aren’t even being played???
Good for her. She clearly needs to take time off (& needing support) and maybe sending signals to organizers but what did they do instead of sitting down and resolving the issue they fined her and threatening her of multiple suspensions. Then if something bad happens they say sorry. Clearly they look after profit and not the well being of the players. If only they showed support and resolved the issue early on.

That might be a good move, as she (and Chanda) bring their offensive politics into tennis.

You have to clean your aura Naomi somebody don't want you on the court, they can do a lot of damage on your mind , spirit and body , please protect yourself, go with a spiritist a prist and clean all of bad and dark energies that others send to you.

Sometimes overlooking things are dangerous.
We all know tennis is exhausting...physical and mental.
Thats why players have their own team...supporting in anyway including the psycho thing.
There must be outside of tennis happening here.
But to be fair...she shouldnt play this time until she resolves her personal issues.
haha.great news. hope i won't see her mug on tv on other tournaments also . she could take the opportunity to learn Japanese since she pretending be japonese :))
When the Slams made their little, "nice livelihood you got there; shame if something were to happen to it" gambit, I doubt they thought the player would be commited enough to their premise to be willing to sacrifice participation in a Slam.
Sasha Smith
Sasha Smith:
Naomi, do what is best for you and your mental health. I know you have a shy personality, it shows in your previous press conferences that your not a public speaker. I hope you take the much needed time away from the court that you need and get better mentally!.
Wong Jefx
Wong Jefx:
tennis is a business and pro players are expected to do more than just play... interviews, promotions, etc...all part if it for a high tier player... so yeah, if she is not in the right space to deal with that... then time off is OK... she has more than proven herself, more titles than most women much older...
It’s fair for her and the tournament. It was the right decision. I hope the media was drop the temperature and not force players into a corner for a comment.

Good for her to withdraw to recovers and should let her rest well..Let her have a rest for one full year and even the olympics.

Her life, her choice. So many people wanna make judgements bout how not polished her move to withdraw is. When anyone is going through that, they aren't worried bout being polished. So she refused the media the opportunity to abuse her or manipulate. Nothing wrong with just valuing silence and personal space.

Get well soon Osaka
Just miss to see you play tennis 🙏
Just wonder why the official keep pushing her about the press thing ..🥲
Really sad to know that Naomi might withdraw from Roland Garros. Hope the authority can come up with a win-win feedback so that we can watch her play again. Best regards to Naomi!

Being a tennis pro at that level is a high pressure job. Maybe she took on too much, committing to too many sponsors too soon, piling the pressure on herself?

I really enjoy watching her play. Their lost she is a draw. Fans come to see the winners. Only Naomi knows how those post match press conferences affected her mentality Noone else does.
Wondering if Naomi just needed a break from tennis for a little while. As a natural introvert, I think she needs to recharge her batteries before she could publicly speak again.
Bernie Biden
Bernie Biden:
It's for the best that she put her mental wellness ahead of playing at this slam. For some odd reason there are many people that don't take seriously the cries of help when folks say, I'm struggling with my mental health. People will believe you quicker if you say you are dealing with a broken bone. That is a societal problem.
You Go are a great woman, you are a warrior naomi, fight for our mental health. we are with you❤❤
Chanda, you looking good girl! Keep it up!
Karen quit the tournament? Either follow the rules or find another occupation.

Luu Duong Hy:
After this event, all event and Grand Slam now decided will make a big change
All player now don't need to participate in conference, but must tell the reason why they don't participate. The only acceptable reason is the player had health problem like hand hurt or some physical problem. Other problem is not acceptable
"there were a lot of balls in the air" :D
Well done Naomi and well said. All those after the match interviews with the always the same "journalists" are so dull and filled with B.S. questions that I never watch them. It's like listening to the same record again and again. It's a show in a circus guided by the level of education and culture of those who watch it. Opinions, thoughts and feelings are a personal thing and one has the right not to share them when asked or else become a liar and a hypocrite. Freedom of speech is also the right to say NO to things one does not agree with, things that are imposed on one by methods of coercion and blackmail. Rules? How about lack of democracy and the rule of dictatorship in the four Gran Slam tournaments? Bottomline. They're losing money by Naomi walking out and rebels must be punished as an example to other.
Good for her! Take care of yourself girl!

Ceferino Jr. Abata:
Naomi is still a young player and she might be experiencing mental mayhem and the pressure of playing on clay which is not her favorite surface sum up her decision to withdraw. I am just sad about what's happening to her and I am hoping that she bounces back fast and strong. Maybe the media can support Naomi in her decision. These are athletes and they are humans. They are vulnerable with internal and external factors affecting their games. Hoping to see Naomi go back strong and with a positive outlook in life and in her matches. Go Naomi! #tennisfan

I mean wtf is wrong with them?! A player doesn't wanna talk to the press. They may be extremely reserved or introverted. They have all the right not to talk
Bonnie L
Bonnie L:
Naomi's decision is well thought out, it's just not convenient to you all. It should be totally ok to just play, and not get involved with the press, and having to answer intrusive questions. She's a leader in her game, she is teaching you all to respect her boundaries. Get used to it.

An after-match press conference would affect mental health? Oh, com'on, you get the whole night and the next morning at least to "recover". I believe a "pre-match" press conference could have some real impact, but "after-match" one? Oh, com'on.

The *PROFESSIONAL PR SPOKESPERSON* took no questions yet the tournament were demanding that she takes questions. She was asking for her work environment to be *MADE SAFER.*
Zayne Underwood
Zayne Underwood:
It's almost as if there's a cancel culture effect with Naomi saying no I'm not going to talk to the media and most of the people in the world realize it the media is full of crap outside of sports except when athletes begin to get political I don't want to hear politics out of athletes. Ever just play the game...
