Naomi Osaka, who gave up going to Roland-Garros after boycotting the media and talking about her mental health, is the subject of a documentary series that will air on Netflix in July 2021.
Netflix is accustomed to successful sports series (“Formula 1: Drive To Survive”, “The Last Dance” and many more), and Netflix is releasing a documentary series on tennis player Naomi Osaka, the current world number one and heartfelt news after her withdrawal from Roland. – Garros. The platform had announced the development of the project in February 2020 but filming began long before that, in August 2019. It will extend until the release of the three episodes scheduled for the week of July 13, two days after the end of Wimbledon (June 28). – July 11) and in full preparation for the Japanese star for the Olympics.
So the documentary can contain the big news that currently surrounds the world number one. The latter has already pulled out of Roland-Garros after the controversy sparked by his boycott of the media. After being fined after the press ignored her victory in the first round of the French Grand Slam, she finally pulled out to put an end to the controversy while highlighting her mental deficiencies.
“I never wanted to be a distraction and accept the fact that my time wasn’t perfect and my message could have been clearer,” Osaka admitted in a long post on his Twitter account. Again, I will never underestimate mental health or use the term lightly. The truth The is that I’ve had long bouts of depression since the US Open in 2018 and have had a hard time doing it.
Djokovic in support
Naomi Osaka also explained that she felt “weak and anxious” upon her arrival in Paris. “I thought it was better to take care of myself and not attend press conferences, I justified it. I announced this in a precautionary way because I feel the rules are partly outdated and wanted to point out. Anyone who knows me knows I am an introvert, and anyone who has seen me at tournaments will notice that I often I don’t wear headphones because they help relieve my social anxiety.” Since then, he has received the support of several players, including Novak Djokovic, and four Grand Slam tournaments. The sequence is eagerly awaited in the Netflix docu.
