    Yeh I certainly do.
    Im sick of all these overpaid sports people playing the mental health/political/racist cards....
    Sure there’s cases for and against but pull your heads in.
    Shes apparently the highest paid sportswoman now, and a role model to not just younger women but the Asian population.
    Grow up.

    FWIW I don’t necessarily think she played the card but broadcasters and media pay the bills. I’m not sure how many people get to tell their employer they don’t want to do the half of what makes them money then expect the same pay cheque.

    Broadcasts pay the bills. She was still playing the actual games so they aren’t affected. Nobody cares about the post match press conference and the media aren’t her employer. I’m with her although she should’ve just pulled a Marshawn Lynch and done the press conferences but answered every question with ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined’.
    Cinderella story, out of nowhere, former greenskeeper, now about to become a Masters champion..... It looks like a mirac.. It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

    Yeah, I feel I'm in a funny position with regards to Osaka and the media. As someone with a lot of mental health issues, and a long family history of it, I do feel for her! But at the same time, none of this was a mystery to her, and she certainly has the wealth to be able to take breaks for her mental health whenever she wants, and today there isn't a stigma for needing to do that.

    But at the same time, I kinda feel about it like I do with celebrities who complain about the paparazzi. You could have just become an accountant? A choice was made to follow a career path that included certain things if you reach a certain level. The media rarely wants to take photos of an accountant, or ask them probing questions.

    First Osaka pulling the Pin over no media interviews then the Fed pulling the pin to save himself for Wimbledon.
    WTF is going on?
    Give it your all and do what's required or don't enter the f***ing tournament jmho.

    Look, of probably give them the benefit of the doubt! Sure, Fed shouldn't have started off he didn't think he could go the distance, bit maybe these niggles have risen up? Osaka, doubt she expected to be fined for not doing the media, and made a decision for her health after that?
    I do feel for those that missed a chance to play, and for those that lost to them who might have progressed further.

    The positive is that there will be yet another Grand Slam added to the long list of different winners recently, unlike the same same for the men. Twelve in the last five years since Serena's dominance ended.
