The current World No.2 pulled out of Roland-Garros, capping off an unfortunate series of events in the French capital from the time she made public her decision not to attend press conferences during the tournament.

The press boycott, of sorts, had put the Japanese star in the eye of a storm, eventually forcing her to send an emailed explainer to the organizers detailing her reasons not to do press.

However, her explanation failed to cut much ice with the French Tennis Federation as it threatened with expulsion if she continued her boycott.

Left with little choice, Osaka announced on Twitter that she had withdrawn from the French Open, adding that she had been battling mental health issues over the last couple of years and had even faced bouts of anxiety before meeting the press.

Speaking to reporters after suffering an opening-round exit at the hands of Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova, Venus acknowledged that doing press is tough on anyone, more so for an athlete.

“Yeah, it’s definitely not easy to do press I think for any person,” the seven-time Grand Slam champion said.

Venus says she’s never been affected by what reporters write about her
On how she has handled the press over the years and whether things ever got overbearing for her, 40-year-old Venus said she has never been affected by what reporters have said or written about her.

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov

Published

on

The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.

The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.

The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.

World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

Opinion: Reckless Novak Djokovic paying the ultimate price for his vanity project

His father, Srdjan, was unimpressed by Dimitrov and blamed the Bulgarian.

“Why did it happen? Because that man probably came sick, who knows from where,” Djokovic Sr. said of Dimitrov on RTL Croatia TV.

“He didn’t test here, he tested somewhere else … I think that’s not fair.

“He inflicted damage to both Croatia and to us as a family in Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”

Kyrgios, who has been very outspoken about the Adria Tour, hit back at Srdjan in an Instagram Story as he wrote ” don’t push the blame”.
