A little more than a month after withdrawing from the French Open, citing mental health concerns, tennis superstar Naomi Osaka suggested press conference reform. According to Fox Sports Radio host Ben Maller, “this has gotta be, the dumbest idea I’ve heard of in some time.”
Last week, Osaka penned a letter published by Time Magazine, discussing the changes she believes need to be made in sports.
“In my opinion (and I want to say that this is just my opinion and not that of every tennis player on tour), the press-conference format itself is out of date and in great need of a refresh. I believe that we can make it better, more interesting and more enjoyable for each side.
