Naturally an introvert who doesn't look for the spotlight, only on her terms!

Why is she looking for the spotlight with this essay again? Guess money talks

Good for Naomi-chan.

Keep doing what you do, playing amazing tennis. Dont be afraid to speak your mind and call things as they are, as a loud and proud Black woman.

Ignore the vultures in the media, and the haters on social media. No matter what you do they will always attack. Most are probably racist.

There is no need for you to use "chan" when referring to Naomi Osaka.

"Janelle Wong, a professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, released analysis last week that drew on previously published studies on anti-Asian bias. She found official crime statistics and other studies revealed more than three-quarters of offenders of anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents, from both before and during the pandemic, have been white, contrary to many of the images circulating online."

Naomi Osaka: Kneeling to protest racism, wearing mask in pandemic 'so obvious'

no actually it’s not.

I'm aware that tennis is watched all over the world, and maybe there is someone that doesn't know Breonna Taylor's story. Maybe they'll, like, Google it or something," she at the time, via CBC.

So she basically wants the entire world to see the USA simply and only as a racist country. While also making money in this supposed racist system and enjoying the perks of fame and privilege.

“Racist country”- based on one police incident where the police made a mistake and police were also shot.

why would you want to present your own country so poorly and falsely to the entire world?

Making money and Perks and Fame. Sign me up! And I don't care what you think about the system.

Unless you got some better ideas, you better be making money if your gonna be part of it.

Tell me again that bedtime story… you know the one you love. About the big income getters and the best job creators, one again?

Drop it already.

She doesn't want to be seen in the spotlight.

No one wants to see her anymore.

Let her play tennis, that's it.

We are good watching Netflix instead of tennis if we want, the end.

It actually is to rational adults who aren’t spoon-fed their opinions by Fox “News.”

No, and this isn’t a logical inference from her quotation.

“Racist country”- based on one police incident where the police made a mistake and police were also shot.

Yeah, just one incident because we all know she would have listed every incident if there were more than one. Smooth “logic.”

There is nothing remotely fragile about Naomi Osaka mentally.

To suggest so, would be a gross insult to Osaka intelligence.

The fact Naomi Osaka insists so, is truly remarkable.

Naomi Oaska her own words....

“It has become apparent to me that literally everyone either suffers from issues related to their mental health or knows someone who does,” Osaka wrote in her essay, adding later: “I do hope that people can relate and understand it’s OK to not be OK, and it’s OK to talk about it.”

Look read the whole article.......

Every athlete is fragile full of self doubt and as sensitive as a crystal vase. But they still able to answer a few questions.

An elite problem for the privileged few: "to press conference or not to press conference"; "to pick up the phone when Michelle Obama calls - or not." For many people, especially Americans, and she's basically an American, the issue is access to quality (mental) healthcare at all. It's generally very expensive. I hope she gives some of her riches to charities in this area.

She has been talking to Meghan Markle too. That figures.

Black- my point exactly in my post, which was deleted. Truth hurts sometimes. Hate to see her turn into another LeBron, controlled by the commies, and torpedo women's tennis, much like LeBron has killed the NBA. Meanwhile, we in the U.S. know who is attacking Asians due to CRT, but unfortunately no SJW's willing to step forward for some reason.

Sports and Games are all about hard work, talent, discipline, and emotion. Fans, media, sponsors, and people of goodwill need to support sportspersons who too are human beings like all of us. That's how one can contribute to prolonging their playing careers. It is nice to watch them playing.
