After a dispute with the organizers about whether to allow her not to participate in the press conference, Roland Garros announced Monday’s withdrawal from Roland Garros’s conclusion: “I’ll see you.” In this statement, the Australian Open 2021 champion wrote, She needs to have no games now, but she did not hint: how long the off-season will be, including the Wimbledon Tennis Open, which will start on June 28 and end on July 11, which is before the Tokyo Olympics ? Watching her every move with a pivotal gaze The face of Naomi Osaka, a Japanese woman raised in Florida, will become one of the symbols of the Olympics. The mobilization of pre-Olympic sponsors made Osaka surpass Serena Williams. (Serena Williams). Woman who makes money: Before the Grand Slam, people’s expectations of Osaka did not attract people’s attention like in Tokyo, and she has not concealed the fact that she has paid the blessings and curses for tennis for a long time. Give her high prices to meet the expectations of others. In a statement on Monday, she already referred to it by its name: Since winning the 2018 U.S. Open, there has been a flurry of depression, and this is her ticket to the highest honor.
Osaka has not written about the weight of Tokyo in 2021, but it is hard to forget it when analyzing the turmoil in Paris. The hardworking queen Naomi lost many advantages on Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Her sister Marie Osaka (she has summarized her career because she has summarized her point of view: tennis does not bring her happiness), she explained that the weak clay court format is the sister’s decision to boycott the press conference one of the reasons.
Osaka wanted to avoid problems that would undermine her confidence. She doesn’t mind being asked on the court after the game, it’s just about the press conference. But obviously, the organizers will react like they do: if we fire you from the press conference, others will want them to have to walk, and you have the privilege. However, the runner-up (four-time Grand Slam champion) in the WTA rankings caused such a commotion that she really surprised her. As she said, if Roland Garros disappears in 2021, “it will be better for the game, for the other participants, and for my well-being”.
In this case, after a game, one of the most powerful women in sports withdrew from one of the biggest events in sports. However, if anyone expects so, it is Naomi Osaka. This is a master who may be full of human touch and contradictions. She lives in her own cloud, isolated from the world wearing huge headphones, she walks into the courtroom. As it happens, even in a brief conversation in court, she hangs for a while, and the answer is sometimes not very suitable for this question. After winning the Australian Open, Osaka asked her final opponent Jennifer Brady: “How do you want to call Jennifer or Jenny?”. This reflects the lifestyle of this Japanese woman. She is an energy ball in the communication on the court, but between them and after the game, sometimes she seems to be drowsy and fall into her own. world.
Over the years, her career has gone through hurdles…
Osaka achieved her first great achievement three years ago, winning the U.S. Open and defeating Serena Williams in a dramatic situation in the final. Afterwards, Serena had a dispute with the judge, and even though she had grabbed the trophy, Osaka won the supporting role that day. Four months later, she became the best player in the Australian Open. At the age of 21, she became a leader in the world rankings. The women’s competition seems to be hers. Then the trouble began.
The first is the breakup with coach Sascha Bajin, with whom she reached the first two Grand Slam tournaments. Every competitor wants to beat the new champion, but as time goes by, it is no longer a surprise. The Japanese eliminated one by one-in the third round of Roland Garros (Roland Garros) 2019, the first round of Wimbledon (Wimbledon) 2019, the fourth round of the US Open (2019) and last year’s Australian Open. In the third round. It slipped to the tenth place in the WTA rankings. As she explained later, this was a very difficult time for her spiritual period. She is not ready for the success and confusion that accompanies it. For many years, she was a pretty quiet and calm girl. Then suddenly, she became a symbol of women’s tennis, the successor to Serena Williams, who was praised by media all over the world at the time. She couldn’t cope.
The destruction caused by the pandemic is beneficial to Osaka. From the moment the tennis player returned to the court in August last year, the Japanese woman has never left the year of defeat! She confiscated two games-Cincinnati semi-finals and Melbourne WTA semi-finals. In the Grand Slam tournament, she has won 13 consecutive victories: she won the 2020 U.S. Open, did not participate in the Roland Garros Championship, and has now reached the Australian Open final. This is the longest Grand Slam tournament in women’s tennis in two years. The last game was also her game, she won 16 games from the 2018 U.S. Open to 2019 Roland Garros.
The biggest change has taken place in her behavior. It started at the Cincinnati Championship last year. She initially withdrew from the party to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man. -I am an athlete, but most importantly, I am a black woman. She wrote that I think something more important than watching me play tennis needs immediate attention. The Western and Southern Opens have been abandoned. When the game finally restarted, the Japanese withdrew from the semifinals due to injuries.
Osaka has become one of the symbols of the movement for black life issues. Before and after winning the first round of the 2020 U.S. Open with Misaka Doi, she wore a mask with the name of Breonnana Taylor printed on it, a black woman who was fatally shot to death by police in March. This is the best proof of the changes that have taken place in Japan in recent months. From the silent mouse that is not ready to become famous and flashes, to the great champion who wants to use her recognition in public affairs.
However, the demands made by others and the demands they set for themselves constantly remind themselves of themselves. -People don’t remember who is second. You can enter the final, but only the name of the winner is history. I think this is why I performed well in the finals. Then, I have a chance to stand out, he said at the age of 23.
