“Tennis is What I Do, Not Who I am”: Naomi Osaka’s Bold Declaration on Her Tennis Experiences so Far



The Japanese international, Naomi Osaka’s, withdrawal from the sport earlier this season brought to light some issues that needed to be addressed. After her clash with the media at the 2021 French Open, Naomi Osaka decided to pull out of the tournament. While doing so, she opened up about her struggles with anxiety and depression after retiring from the competition on the grounds of mental health.

Naomi was criticized, judged, and cornered for not taking enough ‘risk’ and shying away from media attention. However, some of the sport’s most renowned stars came to Naomi’s aid and spoke in her support. Backed by the icons, the youngster’s move became a worldwide movement. Players were demanding a change in the system, one that gives more importance to their mental health. Not just tennis players, but many other sports entities also supported Naomi’s decision and applauded her courage.





Naomi has been making the rounds of the internet, this time for her collaboration with Panasonic Singapore. In a thought-provoking video, the company recently launched Naomi as its brand ambassador. “Tennis is what I do, not who I am,” she said.



The Japanese youngster burst onto the scene after winning her first major title in 2018. However, it wasn’t until her withdrawal that fans got to know her more. A global entity of her scale is often viewed only from the lens of a celebrity or a sportsperson. However, Naomi distinguishes her passion from her profession, thereby not losing her identity of who she really is.

“Tennis is an outlet for my drive and energy. A platform to showcase my athletic ability. I am blessed to experience the lifestyle the game allows. But tennis does not define who I am as a person,” she said.

Through one too many ways, Naomi has not only started movements but also supported many. She’s voiced her support through her actions more than her words and uses her global reach to play a part in creating a change.

“I am equally as passionate about being a catalyst for positive change in the world. I cannot ignore others who are less fortunate nor remain silent, as some might prefer in the face of injustice,” said Naomi.
