This week No.1 Tennis seed Naomi Osaka dropped out of the French Open after being fined for refusing to do press, to preserve her mental health, and facing tremendous backlash for standing her ground. 

Veteran player Venus Williams explains how she deals with problematic press questions...

When Venus was asked how she deals with pressure from the media and she responded that none of them can hold a candle to her because they cannot play at her level and never will.

Right.. these journalists today don't any research..they click buttons & report the shit we already & do little to provoke thought/change& stay asking stupid ass questions. ..
No more Dan Rathers, Ed Bradley, Barbara, Diane, etc.

On the Real, Mental Illness needs to be addressed ASAP!!

I’m glad Venus hit them with that!
And I’m glad Naomi quit. French open thought they were gonna make her do something. I’m glad she knows the need her and not the other way around.

It is what it is. Naomi is not slicing her wrists over no bs interviews. Let her live.

She said this AFTER she got knocked out upon the First be Round of the tournament.

Venus CAN'T play at the level of others right now. She needs to retire along with her sister

Good for Venus and Naomi. It's a well known fact the rules don't apply evenly or fairly if you're not one of 'them'. I bet if some YT woman like Anna Kornykovia declined the press junket she wouldn't be penalized for trying to preserve her mental health. In fact, there would probably be all kinds of movements and support groups for her and shit. F them Crakkas. Let them eat cake.
