Tears by insult: Osaka leaves in Indian Wells
“Naomi, you suck” (Naomi, you nervously), it had tinted in her two-round match against the position 21 set Russian Veronika Kudermetova in the first set of the ranks. The four-time Grand-Slam winner therefore complained to the referee and cast a shot during and after 0: 6, 4: 6 defeat tears.
According to her explained Osaka, the comment came out with her memories of the Indian Wells-Eklat 2001, when Serena and Venus Williams had been boosted. Father Richard Williams had spoken of racist insults at that time.
“To be honest, I feel that it has not really hit me so far when I was disturbed,” said the 24-year-old Japanese woman in her interview on the court with tears in his eyes. “But here? I’ve seen a video in which Venus and Serena were exhorted here. I do not know why, but it has been set in my head and was repeated as often.”
The former number 1 of the world, which speaks openly about its problems with depression, is intended for more consideration of the mental health of athletes.
