Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Podcast: Naomi Osaka drops out of French Open, stands up for mental health

At just 23 years old, Naomi Osaka is already one of the best tennis players in the world. She was scheduled to play the French Open this month, which is one of the sport’s biggest tournaments. But Osaka caused a stir when she announced before matches even began that she wouldn’t be at any news conferences. She cited the “huge waves of anxiety” she feels talking at them. French Open officials weren’t sympathetic and fined her $15,000.

Then on Monday, Osaka stunned everyone. She announced she was withdrawing from the competition altogether.



On today’s show, we speak with L.A. Times sports columnist Helene Elliott about the importance of Osaka’s move. It’s highlighted an issue long bubbling in the sports world: In a place where stress is part of the game, what’s the best way to handle an athlete’s mental health?

Host: Gustavo Arellano

Guest: L.A. Times sports columnist Helene Elliott
