Naomi Osaka withdraws from French Open after expulsion threat over media boycott

Japan’s Naomi Osaka introduced on Monday she was withdrawing from the French Open after sticking to her choice to boycott post-match press conferences on the ongoing Grand Slam event.

Osaka, who’s a four-time Grand Slam champion and former No. 1-ranked participant, had declared she wouldn’t converse to the media throughout Roland Garros and was fined $15,000 by Grand Slam organisers for failing to attend her media duties following her first-round win.

The 23-year-old made the announcement on Twitter. “I believe now the perfect factor for the event, different gamers and my wellbeing is that I withdraw so that everybody can get again to focussing on the tennis.”
