Osaka, who was crowned Best Athlete in Women's Sports at the 2021 ESPY Awards on Saturday, withdrew from this year's French Open on account of the controversy over her refusal to do press conferences as they impacted on her mental health.
She wrote in Time Magazine that players should be given "privacy" and "empathy" from the press and players should be allowed to take a mental break from the media.
Former British number one Andy Murray tweeted after the England defeat to Italy: "All of those players deserve and need the support of the public after that. All seem like brilliant guys. Nothing can prepare you for that level of pressure/attention/criticism at 19/20 years old. Respect"
