Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka has received support from her sponsors, including Nissan, after withdrawing from the French Open in a row about media duties, citing ongoing struggles with social anxiety and depression.

Explaining her decision to opt out of a post-match press conference following her first-round win over Patricia Maria Tig, Osaka, who was later fined $15,000 for this, said :

“Here in Paris I was already feeling vulnerable and anxious so I thought it was better to exercise self-care and skip the press conferences,”

Since winning her maiden major title at the US Open in 2018, Osaka has become one of the highest-earning athletes in the world.
