Osaka gave a press conference again and left crying

Naomi Osaka arrived at Roland Garros saying she did not want to attend press conferences. Later, he ended up choosing to leave the tournament, flagging mental health issues.

In her return to that situation, in Cincinnati, the Japanese answered three questions in a kind way (including the one from ESPN Tennis). The fourth question from the Cincinnati Enquirer was as follows:

CE: You don’t love (“you are not crazy about”) being with us, especially in this format. But you have many other interests that are related to media platforms. My question is: how do you balance the two?
Naomi Osaka: When you say that I don’t love being with you, what do you mean?

Then, the journalist explained his question, Osaka took some time to think about it, answered and before he could answer the next one (about the money he is going to donate to Haiti) he began to cry and withdrew from the conference. A few minutes later, he returned, answered the question, and the conference was closed in English to continue with Japanese only.

In statements raised by Ben Rothenberg, Stuart Duguid (Osaka rep) said: “The Cincinnati Enquirer bully is the epitome of why relationships between players and the media are so strained right now. Everyone at that Zoom will agree. her tone was wrong and her sole purpose was to intimidate. Really appalling behavior. And this hint that Naomi owes her success off the court to the media is a myth, don’t be so lenient. “
