Tennis Star Naomi Osaka Boycotts Press At French Open For Mental Health Awareness, Offically Highest Paid Woman Athlete With $55 Million Payday

Tennis star Naomi Osaka is poppin’ off on folks after announcing she will NOT be doing any press during the French Open to raise mental health awareness. Deets on her activism, plus her HISTORIC $55 million payout when you go inside…

Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka is NOT the one. OK? Sis is going to advocate for issues she believes in and she doesn’t care who doesn’t like it.

Before she hits the court at the French Open, Naomi announced she will NOT take part in news conferences at the forthcoming French Open (aka Roland Garros). She feels the post-match interviews are toxic and she’s over it.

Of course, Naomi – a four-time Grand Slam title winner- will be fined, but she says she will donate the fines she will accrue to mental health charities.

"I am writing this to say that I am not going to do any press during Roland Garros," the 23-year-old wrote on Twitter. "I have often felt that people have no regard for athletes’ mental health and this rings true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one.”

"We’re often sat there and asked questions that we’ve been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I am not going to subject myself to people who doubt me.”

We know that’s right!  And it must be said that organizations choose certain media, and don’t choose certain media, for a reason.  Being more inclusive with press would alleviate a LOT of problems, but organizations tend to ignore smaller, minority owned/run media in favor of white and mainstream media who don’t care to know anything about the actual athlete.  This is why the repetitive, generic questions are posed constantly.

Read her full response above.

Tennis players are required to hold press conferences after each match, but Naomi is bucking on the system! And get this, Naomi usually draws a huge media presence when she’s playing, so the fact she decided not to do press is a huge deal.

A Twitter user tried to come for her about not doing press and she popped back:

”So you decided to play professional tennis knowing exactly what it was and your responsibilities to the sport. Now your don’t want to do your job?,” a Twitter user asked. “Yes, the pressers are part of your job, in fact, you probably wouldn’t have as many fans as you do if you’ve never done them.”

”? Sir I’m paying the fine. How are you gonna tell me how to do my job? You don’t see me come and tell you how incorrect your form is while you’re sitting on the couch,” she responded before deleting the tweet.

Bloop.

And yes, she can talk that ish and pay these dumb fines after a historic year.

The 23-year-old tennis star had one of the most memorable years ever. She won two Grand Slams, but she made headlines when she raised awareness about police brutality. She wore the names of victims (who were killed by police) on her masks before her matches.

According to reports, the 23-year-old earned a massive $55 million endorsements in 2020, according to Sportico. It’s the largest payday in history for any female athlete, surpassing Serena Williams, who came in as the second-highest female athlete on the list with $40 million.

Only LeBron James, Tiger Woods, and Roger Federer, topped Naomi Osaka through traditional endorsements.

Tiger Woods Undergoes Surgery For ‘Multiple Leg Injuries’ After Single-Car Rollover Accident

Tiger Woods is undergoing surgery for “multiple leg injuries” after he was injured in a single-car accident in suburban Los Angeles. More inside…

Gold star Eldrick "Tiger" Woods has been hospitalized and is undergoing surgery for “multiple leg injuries” following a single-vehicle rollover car accident in suburban Los Angeles.

This morning @LMTLASD responded to a roll-over collision in which @TigerWoods was injured. Please see our statement… pic.twitter.com/cSWOxKZC1w

The crash happened around 7:15am PST in the Rancho Palos Verdes area. The 15-time major golf champion was reportedly alone in the vehicle.

It was previously reported fire crews had to use the “jaws of life” to extract Tiger from the vehicle. However, Capt. James Power (from the sheriff’s department) said the jaws of life were NOT used to rescue him. He said first responders popped open the windshield and was able to get him out.

It took six minutes from the time of the accident for officials to arrive on scene. The famous golfer was rushed to the hospital via ambulance in serious condition. No other cars were involved in the wreck.

“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries,” said his manager, Mark Steinberg. “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Tiger’s vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard when it crashed at Blackhorse Road. As seen in the photos of the wreckage, the vehicle sustained major damage. It appears the whole front of the car was torn off and air bags appear to be deployed.

A second crash happened near Tiger’s accident when a vehicle that stopped to help the golfer got hit. Christopher Thomas, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department confirmed that wreck was very minor, and no one was hurt.

A press conference with Sheriff Alex Villanueva to discuss the single vehicle roll over traffic collision will go down at 3pm PST.

Fresh off an eventful weekend, Tiger – who has been recovering from his fifth back surgery – was in L.A. being tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Rivera, where he presented the winning trophy. The golfer was set to film with Discovery-owned GOLFTV on Monday and Tuesday. Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith and former NBA star Dwayne Wade linked up with Tiger yesterday and they shared candid flicks of them while playing golf:

Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time Tiger has been involved in a car investigation. It’s his third. In 2009, Tiger was caught up in cheating drama with his wife that resulted in his SUV running over a fire hydrant and hitting a tree on Thanksgiving. That incident almost ruined his career, causing him to lose major corporate sponsorships. He ended up going to rehab and took a five-month hiatus from golf.

In 2017, the golfer reportedly fell asleep behind the wheel of a car parked awkwardly on the side of the road in Florida. Cops arrested and charged him with DUI. He made claims that he had an unexpected reaction to prescription drugs. In court, he pleaded guilty to reckless driving. He also checked himself into a rehab clinic to get help with prescription medication and a sleep disorder.

The last time Tiger played golf was back in December in the PNC Championship with his 11-year-old son, Charlie. After the tournament, he underwent his fifth surgery on his back (a microdiscectomy) and gave no indication when he would return to the game. Looks like he just got set back even further.

Prayers for a speedy recovery.

The Kid Daytona – Lately

["You live and you learn"]

The Kid Daytona:

[Verse One]:
You must learn
Stick your head in a flame and it will burn
Stand in the way of a train and get hurt
Pay what you [?] don’t underestimate words
For what it’s worth
I gotta get the paper
For yesterday’s news and for what today births
And if that’s problem so be it
‘Cus nothing get’s worse than seein’
Niggas eatin’ in your face when you’re starvin’
Like how you keep up in a race when you’re doggin’
Better late then never they say remain confident
When offices is late with they offers
And radio they left New York for Atlanta, like Crawford
How can I not panic?
Lord forgive, give me your ears holla if you hear me talkin’
I’m finding it hard to keep the faith
On the stage with the monitors off, can you relate?
Chicks, that I seen today, be really all the same
I interchange the name [?]
But committment never came no longer than seven months
‘Cus that bitch named ‘Fame’ always seem to interrupt
And I’m chasin’ a [?] with it
Might be past that
These rap acts got this shit lookin’ like Katt Stacks
Whorin’ it out my worries are my concern
Before the jury is out I gotta learn, face first

[Hook]:
I used to not know a thing
But I knew what it was
Found out a few things and it’s only because
I’m tryna live for as long as I want
And not what for as long as I live
Now if you feel what I feel say what (say what)
And if you feel how I feel say what (say what)
Keep it movin’ don’t wait your turn (why’s that?)
You live and you learn (you live and you learn)

[Verse Two]:
You must learn
What they do is not my concern
He who remains cool [?]
Hey, I break through it and see it all
Moving place of all from
The fake shit basic, small change
And fall with your greatness, face and hall of fame
Ignore the rain, even when it’s pouring
Keep at least one eye on it
CBS, Katie Couric
The news they report it, or maybe not
A baby shot on [?] while the neighbours watch
Jamie Foxx the situation, play blind
To it all no snitching in the ghetto (as you recall)
Came on 60 minutes serial killers on 4E
Rather move away then call police
That’s what happens when you’re raised in the Beast
The stomach of it, no waving white flag for peace
My grandmother played the number, dollar and a dream
My niggas hoping for a come-up, plot and then they scheme
And that’s how it be, I just wanna be me
Word to Tiger Woods goatee
Mostly this what I came away with
Trusting niggas is [?]
But um, a thug changes
And love changes
And best friends become strangers

[Hook]:
I used to not know a thing
But I knew what it was
Found out a few things and it’s only because
I’m tryna live for as long as I want
And not what for as long as I live
Now if you feel what I feel say what (say what)
And if you feel how I feel say what (say what)
Keep it movin’ don’t wait your turn (why’s that?)
You live and you learn (you live and you learn)
