Naomi Osaka said on Monday that she was withdrawing from the French Open following the bitter fall-out from her decision to boycott all media activity at the Grand Slam event.

The 23-year-old Japanese star was fined $15,000 on Sunday and threatened with disqualification after she refused to carry out a mandatory news conference following her first-round win.

She claimed on the eve of Roland Garros that such post-match inquiries were akin to “kicking people when they are down” and that they had a detrimental effect on her mental health.
