All four tennis Grand Slam tournaments have given their support to Naomi Osaka after the world's number two seed withdrew from the French Open. Osaka declined to speak with media in order to “protect her mental health,” and has since admitted experiencing bouts of depression since winning the 2018 U.S. Open. To discuss, former pro Pam Shriver and journalist Kavitha Davidson join the show.
