Naomi Osaka will play on Roland Garros’s court, which was shortlisted with the No. 2 seed. The Japanese woman took part in a competition in Paris a year ago, and Iga Świątek won the championship without even losing any competition. The former WTA leaderboard posted a post on social media announcing that she will not participate in any mandatory press conference during the Grand Slam tournament.
-People do not pay attention to the mental health of athletes. I see it every time at a press conference, or I can participate by myself. Always ask the same questions, or questions that raise our suspicions. Osaka wrote that I don’t want to give in to those who doubt me.
-After the defeat, I saw a lot of players and they became more profound in the meeting. I also said what they meant. In this case, a liar was beaten and I don’t know why-she added.
-My decision has nothing to do with the game and the many reporters I talked to when I was young. We get along well with many of them. However, if the organizers think they will say “Go to the meeting or you will be fined” and they can continue to ignore the athlete’s mental health, I will laugh about it. I hope that the fined money will be distributed to organizations that help people with mental illness-ending her work in Naomi Osaka.
The Roland Garros Championship will start on Sunday, May 30. The championship won a year ago will be defended by Iga Świątek, who has also become one of the favorites to win in Paris after winning the championship in Rome. Magda Fręch, who is about to face Romanian Irina Maria Bara (Irina Maria Bara), is still participating in the final stages of qualifying.
