Osaka’s second win at French Open
World No. 2 female tennis player Naami Osaka has decided to pull out of the French Open after the first match. While giving this information on social media, Osaka said that she has been struggling with depression since the US Open in the year 2018. On the other hand, French Tennis Federation President Gilles Moreton confirmed Osaka’s withdrawal from the tournament, saying that his withdrawal from the tournament was disappointing. We hope that he gets well soon. We will wait for them next year.
Posting on social media, Osaka told fans how she has been fighting depression for the last three years. He wrote in his post that the truth is that I have been under mental stress since the US Open in the year 2018. I had to face a lot of trouble to overcome this. She felt insecure and worried in Paris. Because of this I had to leave the press conference. I had already announced it.
Osaka had a match with Romania’s Anna Bogdan in the second round
At the same time, this year’s Australian Open champion Osaka also started the French Open in a great way. She defeated Patricia Maria Tig 6-4, 7-6 (4) in her first round bout. In the second round, they had to face Ana Bogdan of Romania. Bogdan defeated Italy’s Elisabetta Cossiertto 6-1, 6-3 in the first round. Osaka has won 15 consecutive Grand Slam matches so far.
Osaka was fined for skipping the press conference
Osaka was also fined about $1 million on Sunday. This fine was imposed on him for not joining the press conference after the victory. The organizers were told that if they opted out of the press conference in the same way, then more restrictions could be imposed on them. According to Article III H. of Tennis’s Code of Conduct, Grand Slam organizers encourage players to engage with the media in order to promote the sport.
