    Media contact is 100% a part of being an athlete.

    Not just playing your game.

    The two go hand in hand.

    She might as well say she likes to play tennis but hates returning serves.

    It's all a part of the jump to that level, and you get paid for it too.

    I bet she liked the checks she got for success.



    Next thing you know she'll tell people not to look at her pictures.

    The one's she took and approved for public consumption.

    Yup.

    To have that and then to have to perform at a top level with all eyes on her.

    Hopefully she can get it under control and get back to it.

    The high profile life is definitely not for everyone.

    Totally respect her decision. The French Open officials were foolish attempting to fine her into submission.

    Maybe in the future she will take a page out of the Marshawn Lynch interview playbook.



    Or just answer every question in Japanese, or with so many expletives that the clips aren't fit for broadcast.

    Maybe they should have made the decision for her when it comes to the tournament.

    Screw fines. No media day no play.

    If health is the issue, then you forfeit the tourney.

    its silly to make athletes do press conferences anyways. athletes are only allowed to say non controversial stuff or they get fined/suspended. its just fake boring crap.

    I hear that.

    It's part of the business and you'd think they'd give them some freedoms, a little controversey is good for business.

    At least it used to be.

    Now you can get cancelled.

    A lot of you guys are dopes

    Every tennis player today said part of the job and paid big money sponsors and tourneys your better talk

    Public figures so they get praised and criticized, cant just play sports at that level and not answer questions negative or positive

    The sport would fold

    That's right.

    You want to play at that level, know that it goes hand in hand with promotion and media.

    That's one of the reasons they get the big bucks. It's one of the reasons there are big bucks.

    She is a scumbag

    another ploy to make money like pretending she is black with BLM

    She is not depressed all BS, did not get her way

    French was going to default her anyway so she quit

    That is the real story

    That's what I'm saying. Screw fines, you don't fulfill the contract, you default.

    It's tough.

    But it's business. Athletes try to get it all sometimes.

    But she might also be breaking down. Don't forget that.

    At least she quit on her own volition, I assume.

    Let's see what happens next.
