Naomi Osaka withdraws from French Open

Written by on June 1, 2021

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka said Monday she has withdrawn from the French Open while revealing that she has suffered depression since 2018.

“The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the U.S. Open in 2018 and I have a really hard time coping with that,” Osaka said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“I think now the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being is that I withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in Paris,” the 23-year-old winner of four Grand Slams said.

Her remarks came after French Open organizers have fined Osaka $15,000 and threatened to disqualify her from the tournament after she skipped a press conference following her first-round victory Sunday over Romania’s Patricia Maria Tig.

Osaka was scheduled to face Romania’s Ana Bogdan in the second round.
