Rich Tennis Player Naomi Osaka Uses Mental Health As Excuse To Not Do Press During French Open

Naomi Osaka’s decision to boycott press events during the French Open didn’t exactly jive with her fellow tennis superstars, including No. 1-ranked Ashleigh Barty. Osaka said earlier in the week she would be avoiding the media, citing the strain it causes her mental health. She said she knows she would be fined for skipping out on the press events but hoped the fines would go to a “mental health charity.”

This is a weak decision by Osaka. She’s the face of women’s tennis and promoting/speaking up for the game is a part of a job she gets paid millions for. Don’t like a question you could always say ‘no comment’ or walk out like Serena always does. It’s really not difficult.
