Naomi Osaka has been fined $15,000 for skipping press obligations after her first-round win at the French Open.
Last week, Naomi Osaka announced on her social media pages that she was not making any press rounds at Roland-Garros despite being warned about the consequences. After her Round 1 win against Patricia Maria Tg, the French Open said in a statement that they will be issuing a fine to Osaka for skipping media after the game.
“Naomi Osaka today chose not to honour her contractual media obligations. The Roland-Garros referee has therefore issued her a $15,000 fine, in keeping with article III H. of the Code of Conduct. nThe mental health of players competing in our tournaments and on the Tours is of the utmost importance to the Grand Slams.
