Naomi Osaka Withdraws from French Opens

Naomi Osaka pulled out of the French Open after refusing to attend press conferences. Osaka says she suffers from depression and experiences, “huge waves of anxiety before I speak to the world’s media.

Osaka is walking away from the French Open after a standoff with the sport’s top officials over her refusal to attend news events with reporters. 

Osaka posted this message below.

May is mental health month. Please remember to take care of yourself and to put your emotional needs first. Osaka is a young woman and deserves compassion and the opportunity to take time off to deal with her anxiety and depression and get the help she needs to heal and be whole mentally, spiritually, and physically.
