BREAKING: Naomi Osaka withdraws from Wimbledon

This is huge. After withdrawing from the French Open a few weeks back, Naomi Osaka has withdrawn from Wimbledon. This is obviously huge from a Tennis perspective but even bigger from a mental health awareness perspective. Darren Rovell sums up the magnitude of Osaka’s decision well:

Shout out to Naomi Osaka for being the voice of those struggling with mental health. Athletes have a platform that extends greater than just about any other profession, and to see an athlete at the very top of the entire sports world being so vocal about her own struggles is going to literally change the game for all athletes in the future.

Can’t wait to watch her kick some ass in the Olympics.
