Naomi Osaka Withdraws From Cincy, Joining Sports Protests Against Racial Injustice and Police Brutality -- UPDATE

Naomi Osaka has pulled out of of tomorrow’s "Cincinnati" semifinals, joining athlete protests across baseball and basketball. I think doing this in an individual sport requires a lot more sacrifice than team sports, so I applaud her decision.


Interesting turn of events. No word on whether this will have any effect on Osaka’s decision, but it will mean the finalists will have less time to recover for Monday’s U.S. Open start.


Kudos to Naomi and the organizers.
