Naomi Osaka has sent the tennis world into a frenzy by withdrawing from the French Open due to mental health concerns. After boycotting post-game press conferences, she was facing threats of being defaulted by grand slam organisers. In a statement, she said she had battled long bouts of depression since the 2018 US Open, and that she would withdraw from Rolland Garros to focus on her well-being. Research fellow at the University of Melbourne Dr Courtney Walton tells The World French Open officials miscalculate this situation.
