Naomi Osaka Leaves Wimbledon
In June 2021, Osaka’s agent stated she would not be playing for the remainder of the month at the French Open. According to reports, Osaka planned to make her return to the tennis court for the Tokyo Olympics.
Naomi Osaka will not play in Wimbledon this month but will compete at the Tokyo Olympics, her agent said on Thursday. Osaka’s agent, Stuart Duguid, confirmed that she would skip the grasscourt Grand Slam tournament that begins on June 28 but would play at the Olympics, scheduled to take place from July 23 to Aug. 8.

She will be ready for the Olympics and is excited to play in front of her home fans.” (New York Times)
Naomi Osaka Withdraws From Tennis Tournament
A few weeks ago, Osaka went to her social media channels with a personal message addressing her departure from the French Open. In her message, Naomi confessed her personal challenges in speaking with the media and the reason she missed mandatory meetings with them during the competition.
“The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the U.S. Open in 2018 and I have had a really hard time coping with that. Anyone that knows me knows I’m introverted, and anyone that has seen me at the tournaments will notice that i’m often wearing headphones as that helps dull my social anxiety. Though the tennis press has always been kind to me (and I wanna apologize especially to all the cool journalists who I may have hurt), I am not a natural public speaker and get huge waves of anxiety before I speak to the world’s media.”

“Album almost done, but sumn’s comin just until then 📶”
Osaka went to his comments section to geek out.
