I like osaka too but what the reason for her nedia ban? Im not up on current teniis events
Some mental health protest for athletes. It’s very silly. And she’s alone in her views. The other players have distanced themselves from here stance.

Can you extrapolate her reasons if its not too much trouble.

She feels the media ‘kick her while she’s down’ and ask the same repetitive questions, without any regard for the mental health of athletes. So she’s deciding to boycott the media to prove a point.

This article explains it a bit better than I can haha.
