I guess leyla fernandez one earlier this year and i completely missed that but I i honestly. I hadn't heard of her until now just a little thing. She did by beating naomi osaka. Right it's not just that she's deep in this tournament. It's that she just beat. Naomi osaka the the defending champion. The number one in the world which immediately sets up. Well sky's the limit possibilities for this tournament. But you always wonder about the letdown. Sometimes like that must've felt like the greatest thing in the universe right for fernandez who's from lavalle quebec by the way. Anyway she didn't have any kind of letdown. She went out and just beat a three time. Grand slam winner in angelique kerber in the next round. So i mean it's crazy but we've got yet another canadian teenager just after andress.

That bill belichick hasn't told him we'll start the regular season opener. September twelve against the miami dolphins new and has taken all the first team reps throughout training camp and preseason. He was asked the question because while bell check has repeatedly said that newton is the team starting quarterback he also said on the night of they drafted alabama's mack jones in the first round. Whatever time mac is ready to challenge and compete. Then we'll see how that goes. Here's cam no you know you know. He hasn't said that. So i just ask the question you know. It is what it is so every single day. I'm coming out here with the anticipation that just get better. And that's that's the only thing that i could do. So i can control that damien. Woody joining us now. He knows what. It's like to play for the new england patriots in to see you sir. That's an agenda that you know. He hasn't name starter. We see things so differently. Max i'll start with you. Is this something or nothing something. It's something you know like bill belichick not know everyone not know who is going to be the starter during tom. Brady's rain in new england. No you didn't know that. Tom brady was healthy. Won't be matt castle right like we knew that. Cam newton who bellichik has raised to the heavens. His work ethic his his leadership has competitiveness. You saw bill. Belichick will put his arm around him. At one point he knew he was battling cove at all these kind of things. Cam newton former. Mvp four best player in the game guy who came off of catastrophic injury faced kovin no practices no preseason facility shut down because a cova lost his whole defense no weapons. That's why tom brady. What two plays away from winning nine games last year that cam newton hasn't been named the starter. He's competing with a rookie with a rookie. How often does bill belichick played rookie. Quarterback's no this is something max. Let me tell you something. Man plan up in new england for five years all their. What you say doesn't even matter. Okay you're talking about the same bill belichick when i was there that cut loy malloy the week. Who was a team captain. Cut them the week of week. One against buffalo bills. This man is. He doesn't care about the accolades. None of that matters. Okay at the end of the day. What what is the upside in. Bill belichick naming a week one starter. We're like three weeks away or whatever. It is from my first regular season game. These guys are competing right now. It does the new england patriots organization. No good to hear and say which quarterback is going to be want start. You're talking about two different quarterbacks with two contrasting styles we know what cam newton is. We know a former league. Mvp we know his dual threat guy. Okay now he's competing against rookie. Who's more the traditional pocket. Pass along the lines of tom. Brady so in nets this is so it makes no sense for bill and say okay. Cam newton starter. You wait until we want the we of one to go out there and name your starting quarterback because the competition is that close up in new england. I don't disagree. What either of you. Max damon. What i would tell you is my focus is in a different place is in a different place from what we're seeing from You guys right now okay. Here's what we have to accept. Cajal take the patriots off the screen. Because i want to look at it. Max and damian when i say this let's understand what transpired max mack. Jones has surprised if you ain't surprised me because you know i wrote alabama all day every day. You understand what. I'm saying. So i saw what he did last year. Or right i want. I'm no guy damian that went and spoke to the team. When nick sabin had me come down there and speak to the team news by the way And i am. I am special. I am speech giver. But here's the deal. I'm only kidding. Judge that but in all seriousness mack jones. He can ball. And so for nick sabin and bill belichick to be allied in their thinking as football minds for matt jones to come from that system. It's not just from a football perspective. It's a demeanor how you carry yourself your approach to the game. You know how you study film to kind of things you look for all of these different thinks. Here's my point. He gets the new england and his footsteps tippy toeing. He stopped because he can make the throws any looks part. And you got cam newton. Who was the successor to tom. Brady first of all. It was never a snowball's chance in hell. He was going to be tom brady. We understand that his greatest cam. Newton has been anal. Tom brady that's number one number two. Because you're the direct success at a. Tom brady from a human perspective. That's certainly going to come if not expectations. Then it's an elevated level of cynicism. Then you had last year because you got cold and you went through what you went through and the team missed the playoffs you have as your backdrop and now here you are in front of the media and the media's asking you about whether you starting to not understand what camp did what camp did what camp suspected is what we are wondering whether or not naomi asaka was suspected because of what ha- agent said in cam newton's case it's a bit more flagrant. I'm talking about based purely on a press conference yesterday. You could tell. Leave santa the media. Why are you asking me this question. You know damn well bill belichick and tell me that you ask me this for me because you you try to start something okay because in essence and correct me. If i'm wrong. Damian cam is standing up there no feeling. I shouldn't say knowing because you don't know what's another people's heart but feeling at his cool that a lot of cats asking him. Those questions want mag jones to be the starter. They don't want him. That's how he's feeling and i think all of that stuff is meshed. Well listen i'll say this. Okay eve bill. To- cam newton. That he will start it. He wouldn't say because that's just how the program is in new england. You don't give away state secrets up in new england. Okay everything's about the opponent. Keep it keep as much information in house as possible. But listen mac. Jones not playing around mag jones is on his tail. That's why with josh. I think maggie jones mack. Jones fits josh mcdaniels system. Which had tom brady. Follow those years more so than what cam. Newton does for the new england pages. So if this close. I think it goes to matt jones. And that's why something okay. I point dropping on that where it goes to mack jones. because we have a heart out damian. That was strong. Thank you so much..

"A young age. Our guys more breaking news. It's time no more are adam. Schefter is reporting. The jaguars have released. Tim tebow who's trying to make a return to the nfl as a tight end. Tibo tweeted just shortly ago thankful for the highs and even the lows the opportunities and the setbacks i've never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure and i'm grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream match. We'll start with you. What's your reaction to this. I've been this is how it goes like. This is why the reaction to tibo getting the opportunity in the first place. I understand and the way. Maybe it's tied into white privilege or some kind of adjunct to white privilege. Something related to it. Maybe okay former college coach. He's a national champion. He's from the area. He's very famous and very well liked like and they didn't give him a job. They gave him an opportunity and stephen. It's very difficult for people to get upset at someone who accepts an opportunity. Most people are not turning that down even if others are not so privileged right. You may insist. Hey everyone should have the same opportunity but usually the individuals not gonna turn that down. I didn't have a problem with that. And now this is what happened. He had an opportunity. He gave it his best shot. His best wasn't good enough. He doesn't have a job that he didn't make the cut. That's how it goes. I don't have a problem with the way any of this played out a couple of things. My condolences maha goes out to tim. Tebow he wanted to play sports Obviously for those of you who who have been living iraq in may not know tim t-boz very marketable individual. He's not somebody that's going to have a problem having a job. He definitely will have a job in this industry at this network. I hope he's back tomorrow to be quite honest with you. I miss him. I miss and him on television. Let's be clear this it. Tim tebow is going to be fine but this meant a lot to him. Unfortunately it didn't work out for him so on that level maha goes out to him to piggyback off your point in a really expound upon it max. Here's the important point. And i'm not saying that you don't understand the so even though i'm talking to you're not really talking to you talking to everybody. Okay let's hearken back to. When it was first announced that tim tebow was going at the age of thirty three going on age thirty four. He just turned thirty four this past saturday. Happy belated birthday at age. Thirty three golden age thirty four. When it was first announced that tim tibo was going to be on jacksonville. Jaguars going for tight end spot. Do you remember the look on our colleagues face ryan clark. Everybody was laughing. Or go with ryan clark was not laughing. I clock has nothing against tim. Tebow ryan clark didn't wish him to fail or anything like that but you could sense it. And you could transition. From ryan clock to damien. Woody to marcus spears. The list goes on and on of former football players. Who happened to be african american. And where does that come from. Where america needs to understand is that. We're not talking about tim people. We all root for him individually as the person as the man. What we were talking about is exactly what you just brought up. Max opportunity people think like you say he didn't get the job but i got news for you max. There's a whole bunch of black folks that never even get the opportunity nor would ever get that opportunity every life. You'd think about this second. He was a heisman. Trophy winner and a star in the collegiate level as a quarterback came into the nfl and played as a quarterback when he was playing quarterback. There were people that were saying. Maybe you should try to be tied tight. Something he like. No i'm quarterback didn't work out the parts from the game for eight years and then comes back to play position. He has never played in his life after he left the sport all together and tried to play baseball so as african americans who played despite a football i instantly knew. Although i didn't play football. I instantly knew what ryan clark in those guys who had nothing to do with tibo. They wish to nothing but the best but what they were saying was wait a minute. This is sport of football. You don't just come up and in this profession on the professional level. You've never done it anywhere else and think. Hey you get this position. Be more importantly coaches and organizations usually wouldn't give you the opportunity because you never paid your dues by playing the position before you tried to play it at an elite level and that's when issues of race and things of that nature come into the fray because the opportunity is what we illuminate. It's not even the result. It's the opportunity that's according to others that would never be accorded to us and when that happened whether this would tim tebow without. What are pointed. Out with steve nash. Or whatever. I apologized on the air. Max if you recall steve is a wonderful man really good dude represented by man that i love and revere and bill duffy one of the greatest agents to ever be in this business who swears by the character and the man that steve. Nash is an my retort to bill. Duffy was. It's not about steve nash. I'm not talking about him. I'm talking about him. Being the embodiment of something that would never ever ever happen for us. And this is the latest example of this whether people got this job or not was really relevant is the fact that he got an opportunity that we can't think of a black man advocating on those same right answers. The question is if you do the thought experiment. We're tim tebow black. Would he get the same opportunity if you were an american. You know it's hard to say because you might say he couldn't be tim tebow if he was african. american made. sure you'll never that high. Maybe although maybe it does. Maybe if there was an american quarterback in college who who's religiosity war on his sleeve and was inspirational to people and won a national title. Maybe that ca- his coach got a job in the nfl and wanted to bring him in just as to boost. I dunno culture or whatever maybe he would have gotten out opportunity. Maybe tim tebow is being tokenist in this way as a symbol of white privilege and he doesn't deserve it. And maybe the same applies to steve nash. To say it's not to say that white privilege doesn't exist right. Maybe race does play a part here. It's just say for example in the in the example. You give steve nash. That was really relationship with kevin durant and kyrie irving right that got him. That job were he african american. Would you still have that same relationship with them. Would they still not back them. And he's still not wind up with a job. That's impossible to note. But i suspect the answer is yes there history. Yeah i could go history. There is no black man. there is no black man. Max that has ever that has never had any experience on any level leading up to a professional job and getting a professional head. Coaching job. For managerial job..

It has to be something that has a message in yes. I have beaten suit on. Yes i'm in. My muslim informed bites what i stand for. And why i was chosen to be part of the issue and then be on the cover was because of what i wanna do with everything i do in the bible being In the past a lot of the models are beautiful.

What were your impressions of this most unusual opening ceremonies and overall Olympic Games? Well, I think they tried the best they could. I found it. I rarely try to give opinions in my reports. But I found it a bit sad and no pun intended. There was sort of an empty feeling in the stadium. You know, when you go to an event like this part of the event is the fact that you're sharing that you may not consciously be sharing it, but you're sharing it with Thousands of other people there would have been around 65 68,000 fans in the stadium. I'm guessing there were a few 1000 people there yesterday around 1500 media members, some support staff. Uh, some dignitaries, the diplomatic corps, et cetera. So several 1000 people were there. It just wasn't the same. I was comparing it to. I saw Hamilton in 2015 in New York. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it watching it alone. When you're whipped the crowd, something adds to it, And I think that's what was missing last night, so I did find it a bit sad. They tried. There was some spectacular moments. Wonderful pictures. Naomi Osaka lighting the Olympic cauldron just wonderful, but It just didn't it didn't didn't have the necessity that you have to have the fans there to make it work. Not

"Happy to be here absolutely. You are both Much more tennis people than i am. So i'm to hear what you think about this series which is on netflix. There's a good chance that You know who is if you don't the kind of bio basics are these. She was born in japan. Her mother is japanese and her father is haitian. The family moved to new york when she was a toddler. Her dad had her playing tennis when she was three. She won her first grand slam at the us open in twenty eighteen daisy. I'm going to ask you as a big tennis fan. How do you situate mayumi asaka as a tennis player as of right now how does she sort of fit into tennis world. Naomi is a younger player. Who is just fantastic to watch. I mean she's just the person. I've been rooting for these last few years. Even as i also route four serena to break her records But naomi is just one of those people that i can't help but root for and i feel stressed out when she plays other players that i like specifically because i just find myself rooting for her ability. I mean she really didn't come out of nowhere per se but it was one of those things where people really noticed what her skills were because she won the us open right and just immediately became the exciting player to watch. She's got a lot of power and that you notice that when you're watching i've unfortunately never gotten to see as much tennis live as i would like but it really comes through on the television which i don't think is true of everybody that you're watching her power. Her strength really comes through but she's young and she is very shy. I mean we'll get into more of what we learn about that in the documentary itself. But i don't anybody. Even pre documentary or pre the announcements about wimbledon or any of that would have labeled her as someone who is known for being outgoing so her reserve. Nece her quietness. Her general. Shyness is part of what we've come to know about her as a player as well. Joe what are your sort of basic naomi. osaka baseline thoughts two thousand eighteen. us open. When she beat serena williams she gets her first grand slam title. And that's i think when most sort of mainstream sports fans get to know who she is but she had been up coming for a while there throughout her teen years especially. She was a very of promising player but a lot of her narrative as it is with many tennis players especially the younger tennis players are her mentality. Was she going to be able to absorb versity in big matches and things like that and she was always a player that was incredibly. Her game has beautiful to watch. And i think one of the things that this documentary does really well is sound design and best when they show her matches and you can hear just the power of the shots and the precision of of where she strikes. The ball is really really fantastic. But as you're watching her career early on if you watch tennis for any length of time there are always these players who are up and coming. And it's like cam. They hit that next level and with naomi it was always like is she going to be able to sort of withstand the mental pressures that it takes to be an elite person in this sport and the fact that she was able to. Not only like beat serena williams in that big big match and then win three further grand slams and this past us open. I thought especially with everything that was going on which is depicted in the documentary with you know her activism in the black lives matter movement and also the fact that it was a pandemic. Us open with no fans and so much else going on she was so poised and so tough. Sort of like mentally tough. Which is the thing that you'll hear tennis announcers. I can hear. John mcenroe's voice in my head when i say something mentally tough but like it's true and she's the feeling that i have watching her plane now and the confidence that she plays with is like it's really really something and i think one of the things that the documentary does very well is. If you've been especially for somebody like muse watching tennis all time to track her journey from this sort of like she still very soft spoken introverted. And that's a lot big part of her narrative but it's also the fact that she has been able to sort of take the reins of being an elite player and is doing something with it and stumbles and there are there ways where she still feels unsure of herself but it makes her really really easy to root for in a way of like. I find her thrilling to watch them that way. One of the things about a sports documentaries. Always how much time are you gonna spend. Just watching people play a sport because if you wanted to watch a tennis match you would watch tennis match and a lot of people have seen a lot of tennis and a lot of people are not going to necessarily take away too much from long uninterrupted tennessee. So i think it's very well edited. We should mention the director of this is garrett bradley who directed time which was nominated for an oscar earlier this year. I think it's very well assembled to bring home. The tennis has sort of an activity that she is doing without. Just kind of reproducing. What it's like to watch tennis on television. I would definitely agree with that. I mean coming out of watching it. I was thinking to myself. Look if you don't know much about tennis at all but you're maybe intrigued by this person. You're not gonna come out of this knowing a lot about tennis by any means but in great way they give you enough context understand why she is good or where you're supposed to be seeing her struggle in the moments were they're showcasing that. Yeah but they do not go out of their way to be like well. Tennis is a sport where blah blah. You know it's not at all right. Do also make sure that the scenes that we do see of her playing tennis the clips that we do have from major tournaments are really compelling and set up in a way so that you understand the stakes and they're good. I think it using announcer audio a little bit to provide context. What's going on. There's a moment when she's fallen behind by a set. Yes and they begin to talk about how unusual it is for anybody to come back in that situation. And so they're very kind of wisely taking just a snippet of the announcer to essentially act as a narrator in the documentary to give you the context of you know. Here's how up against the wall. She is in that kind of circumstance. Yeah one of the things that the documentary. I think does sort of impress upon you about tennis. Sport is what a solitary sport it is and because of that. I think it's really lends itself very well to narrative. When i'm playing i have like a robot mind keep you basically punching in and punching out but you're punching in is winning the match i feel like you have to be mentally strong to play tenets because tennis is a solo sport. You're kind of by yourself in team sports. There are a lot of moving parts. There's teammates you know. Tom brady can have a bad day but his teammates might be able to make up for it and the patriots still win that kind of thing whereas in tennis because it's so solitary to the point where lake they don't allow coaching on. And that was a big aspect of this serena williams match. That was so controversial right. What's the issue at stake was was getting illegal coaching. And so it's like you are so so so much on your own and they sort of talks about in the documentary and she says she plays on instinct. I thought that was a really interesting moment. Where she says that her style of tennis is very very much instinctual and so the mental stuff makes it all the more important because she's really just acting in the moment and so because in tennis you are so much sort of by yourself in in your head in in your own moments. It lends itself to a narrative. You know it's it's not only just her game but it's like it's naomi's though sack as a person is sort of on the line every single match and i think that's the thing that you see really weighs on her where it's like now. She's in this elite level. And it's just like unless i can be as like you know mentally tough dominant as serena williams positively. The greatest athlete has ever lived. And it's like. I'm falling short of.

"Brought to you by. Macy's naomi osaka. It's okay not to be okay by naomi. osaka naomi. Osaka is a professional tennis player. Who will represent japan. In the upcoming olympics. Osaka was the first asian tennis player to be ranked number one by the women's tennis association. And the first japanese-born player to win a grand slam. Life is a journey in the past few weeks. My journey took an unexpected path. But one that has taught me so much and helped me grow. I learned a couple of key. Lessons lesson one. You can never please everyone. The world is as divided. Now as i can remember in my short twenty-three years issues. That are so obvious to me at face. Value like wearing a mask and a pandemic or kneeling to show support for anti-racism are ferociously contested. I mean wow. So when i said i needed to miss french open. Press conferences to take care of myself mentally. I should have been prepared for what unfolded lesson to was perhaps more enriching. It's become apparent to me that literally. Everyone either suffers from issues related to their mental health or know someone. Who does the number of messages i received from such vast cross section of people confirms that i think we can almost universally agree that each of us is a human being and subject to feelings and emotions. Perhaps my actions were confusing to some because there are two slightly different issues at play in my mind they overlap and that's why i spoke about them together but let's separate them for the sake of discussion. The first is the press. This was never about the press but rather the traditional format of the press conference. I'll say it again for those at the back. I love the press. I do not love all press conferences. I've always enjoyed an amazing relationship with the media and have given numerous in-depth one on one interviews other than those superstars who've been around much longer than i. Novak roger rafa serena. I'd estimate that. I've given more time to the press than many other players over recent years. I always try to answer genuinely and from the heart. I've never been media trained. So what you see is what you get the way i see it. The reliance and respect from athletes oppress is reciprocal however in my opinion and i want to say that this is just my opinion and not that of every tennis player on tour. The press conference format itself is out of date and in great need of a refresh. I believe we can make it better more interesting and more enjoyable for each side less subject versus object more peer to peer upon reflection. It appears to me that the majority of tennis writers do not agree for most of them. The traditional press conference is sacred and not to be questioned. One of their main concerns was that i might set a dangerous precedent but to my knowledge..

"She was told you are often compared. I'm just remembering what it was often compared to the williams sisters. Maybe it's because you're black. But i guess it's because you're talented and maybe american to And you know this is the kind of thing where if you're a younger woman particularly if you're a woman of color your operating again with an ecosystem that was set up for men and particularly white men especially in sports like tennis and it makes sense that the media isn't necessarily going to treat you with the sensitivity that you or the sensitivity and the perspective that you might have and put the question that cocoa face just then. But you know Serena face questions that have been insulting for her She was hasn't won a handled i'm sure naomi's experience questions that she doesn't want to answer and Basically just athletes saying look finally have the power. I'm gonna. I'm gonna do this on my terms. I mean you can absolutely imagine a conversation between You know asaka a therapist saying look. If you don't wanna do this just say no. You don't have to say no to all of it. They know to the part that isn't working for you and that's what she did here And i it's actually. It's sad to hear the when she did kind of say no to the part of it. That wasn't working for her. That isn't the core of her job. She didn't actually get what she wanted. She's dropped out since osaka's departure. I see the tennis pro. Roger federer also declared. He was leaving the french open so he could rest up for wimbledon. do you see. Those cases are connected. And did the establishment respond differently to federer's exit versus osaka's I mean. I do think that i don't think that the That the cases are related. I think the concern of someone like naomi osaka. Who's so young. Her whole career ahead of her is quite different than i mean. I think they're they're similar in that there to kind of luminaries at the top of their field. But i think different in terms of power dynamics. And i don't i don't think that he's getting by any means the same sort of critique that she's getting and i think the difference there is a he's pulling out and giving very different reasons from what she was saying. I think part of the around sokha is that she was using The i guess it's an excuse or as a as a reason her mental health and it made the media feel like they couldn't touch her or comment on that without appearing To be part of the problem that she's talking about that's very yeah and that's very different than What that are encountered written about the different value that the pro sports were gives to people's mental and physical health right and if we were to start from square zero on federer and asakusa stories. In a way you could say they both Pulled out of the french open for their health The only differences osaka for mental health and and federal for his physical health to rest up for wimbledon.

"I want to take you back to a moment at the us open in two thousand eighteen. The trophy was about to be presented for the women's final a twenty year old naomi. Osaka had just beaten the greatest. Of all time serena williams it was a contentious game serena even got into an argument with the umpire. Romasis said game penalty correct. Quaker and as soko is named champion. The crowd booed she cried. She tried to hide her face. It was really tough to watch because you could tell how uncomfortable she was. It was supposed to be the celebration but it's so obviously wasn't i know that everyone was chained for her. I'm sorry like this. And you could see then. Naomi osaka discomfort with being in the spotlight. It was something that was made really visible this week. When she said she wasn't going to do postgame press conferences during the french open and eventually dropped out altogether. This whole saga has raised a lot of questions about the demands on athletes and the media culture. They in happen. I'm jimmy boisseau in today. Caitland thompson from rocket magazine is here. Walk me through this controversy. Hi caitlyn thank you so much for being with me today my pleasure. Thank you for having so the only asaka is more than just a talented tennis star. She's the highest paid female athlete working today for one and before we dig into this controversy at the french open can can you remind us of of what makes her unique as an athlete. Yeah i mean. There's a couple of different things i think for for number one. She's somebody who came up largely in the states The but her parentage is her father's haitian and her mother is japanese and she chose to represent japan a place that she was born largely because they were giving her more support as a junior and she really emerged on the scene kind of fully formed as a fourteen fifteen year old hitting tennis balls faster than many many had hit a from a young person's perspective in a very long time tennis threes auto attendant flood. I'll do anything. In my power get their southeast by and also was a pretty fully formed athletes even from the early years i think she established herself fairly quickly as a real contender. And then obviously as you note in two thousand eighteen really a full year and a half. After she'd begun playing full schedule professional tournaments found herself in a final against the greatest of all time the second time they played that season. Naomi famously paged serena and beat her very soundly. A couple months before in miami hitting from another world's dragging serena williams all around the court there really was thrust onto the big stage at the. Us open a lot of people. Thought maybe this one and done but she backed it up with a win at the australian open very quickly thereafter and then last summer won the. Us open again after having won another australian open. She's see-saw common so she's already won four grand slams and i think what really makes this. An interesting moment is her. Tennis court has been impeccable and really hard to argue with. But she's also. Because i think a little bit in part of the way she means so much to so many different people she's been positioned and has stepped into the role of being really a transcendent star. You know she's somebody who's been an activist. We saw her wearing black lives matter. Protest masks at seven matches at the us open last year and really educating an entire country of japan about the struggle in the us for racial equity. The point is to make people start talking. I mean for me i. I've been inside the bubble. So i'm not really sure what's really going on on the outside world. All i can tell us what's going on on social media and for me. I feel like you know the more re tweets the guts. That's so lame but you know the more people talk about it you know. And she somebody who has noted is is incredibly sought after as an endorser because she's so authentic. She's not somebody who comes with the same kind of media polish that i think is is really emblematic of yesteryear. She's somebody very fresh and very new and very real i think.

"naomi osaka" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times

"Wherever. You find your podcasts. We're back helene. You wrote that. Naomi osaka deserves empathy. Not condemnation a message that stands in direct opposition to the quote shut up and dribble crowd. That has long dominated sports stretch and commentary but it seems like this time. You mentioned earlier with steph. Curry the sports world seems more understanding. If not just altogether accepting yeah. I think we've seen with kevin love the basketball player. We've seen it with So many celebrities. We've seen it with everyday baseball players. Zack grind key played for the dodgers. He was franken discussing. he had had some issues. he got medication or treatment. Or whatever he did and he's been able to go forward and be healthy and and happy and that's the important thing and again. I think the pandemic and this is something that Former tennis player pam shriver brought up to me when i spoke to her as she has three teenagers. Two of them have had mental health issues because of the pandemic because they can't socialize because everything is so different in new and i think it's become a more common and more understandable issue everybody It's not so remote. It's not like somebody is an outlier because they've had mental health issues. We've seen it everywhere. And it's more understandable. I think in people can identify more with their soccer and what she's gone through. What about current players on the tour. I saw no me's instagram account. There was a comment from venus williams suppor venus williams and other tennis legend what about some of our competitors cocoa goth who is an up and coming young american star also offered support others have as well I think serena williams said something to the effect of. I wish she was here so i can give her a big hug. I think the understanding is important. I think that we have to realize people handle stress differently. People are wired differently any crisis that you're in whether it's a delayed playing or a late restaurant meal you know some people handle it well. Some people go ballistic. You have to leave room for people to handle it. However they're wired to do it to come to the realization that maybe they need help to get help. If if that's the case where even talking about mental health and sports You know this past generation is pretty impressive. Dented in the total history of sports. So you mentioned kevin love basketball player sat cranky a baseball player Then i'm thinking in the past like not so distant past but still further like metta world peace the basketball player and then going way. Way back during pearsall yeah. That's exactly what i was gonna say. Jimmy pearsall baseball player from nineteen fifties. Who suffered a nervous breakdown than his struggles were made into a film called fear strikes out so when they talked about those struggles fans looked at them as like you know anomalies really sad cases. They sympathize but they just like oh you know they just broke down but that's obviously not happening now in this generation what has happened. I think there's more empathy. I think there's more room for empathy. And again i think we're seeing it all around us You know even Everyday people people who aren't tennis stars basketball stars have become frustrated had become depressed have become emotionally upset or during this whole pandemic Not having work or being forced to work when you don't want to or when you're not sure it's safe Forced to be to change everything you knew about the way you did your job and the way you live your life. I mean those are huge changes and again some people handled it better than others but just because somebody handled it differently doesn't mean that they should be shamed. Historically of course we see our sports. Heroes as gods gods and goddesses unassailable. They're not human them talking about their own struggles makes them very much human. Do you think this is good for The whole idea of sports heroes and sports worship in general. Absolutely i mean i think The real heroes are the people. The doctors nurses and the hero should be teachers and preschool teachers. And all that the way our society is structured. We make athletes heroes and okay. That's fine but i think it's completely healthy to see that. These people are flawed. They feel doubts. And like you do every day or i or anybody else can feel doubts. I think it's absolutely healthy to to know that they go through this and they can be role models in the sense of seeing naomi osaka. Give a name to what she was feeling to give it. The name depression. I think is going to encourage a lot of other people to take a harder. Look and go. You know what what i feel could be. Depression should get help. What should i do next. I think just to open the conversation and to make people aware that it's more common than you may think some people just hide it better than others To put it out there for athletes to say you know what i've had that two of i've experienced that i think can help.

"A young woman of color mixed race and in what is still a very white sport. How does that do you think Shape in some ways how she was treated not just in this incident but over the course of her career over the course of the past couple of days. People have been sort of pulling out questions that were asked. Not only her but serena williams as well and other tennis players who are women of color and some of them. Are you know. Sort of upsetting and shocking. They've asked naomi osaka. Serena lands that just because you're black you know and she identifies as being of japanese and haitian descent It's hard to imagine that her feelings don't stem at least in part from having to move through this white world as a woman of color And the way that she is treated you know we've seen male tennis players behave absolutely abominably and Nothing really comes with. It's certainly not an international conversation like the one we're having right now And and i do think that you there is a segment of the fandom and possibly of The people in the tennis world that really do not like seeing a woman of color. Tell them no and set up boundaries. And so i think that impart is probably what she's going through. As well you mentioned serena. I wanna play you. Something that serena williams said at a press conference. This was from the us open last september sometimes harder than others. Every day. having serena on your back is a massive target for the tour for press for stress. But as billie jean king said Pressures privilege so. I wouldn't want it any other way so i just try to think about how fortunate i am to have been in this position. Honestly to be syrian and it feels weird to say that pressures privileged. What do you think that says about about what we expect. From pro athletes. We expect a lot from pro athletes. And i think that we don't necessarily acknowledge them as fully formed human beings with emotions. I like i said. I think that people feel that. You should be grateful for the position that you're in that that they wish they could do that. Therefore it should be everything to you. It should be the most important thing in your life and again that that money solves all problems which is untrue and You know i. It's just a a strange sort of way. I think that as naomi osaka has gotten as she's gotten The pressure has gotten bigger for her. Maybe than she can handle right now and i don't mean that in a in a negative win but you know she rose to start on very quickly and people talk about her early days in press conferences. In how affable she wasn't how funny she was. That was before she was the highest paid woman athlete in the world. That was before she was the number two ranked woman in the world. Who would run. Forego land grant slaps. She is twenty three years old and dealing with the mental health crisis. And that is something that a lot of people can relate to unfortunately do not relate to it as well as they should..

"Debuted a new balance beam. Dismount that is just off the charts difficult and it was valued a little bit lower than than people were expecting. What is what's your house. Yeah so this you'll be unsurprised to hear is not very transparent process. What happens is that when gymnasts wants to debut a new skill and entered into the code points they formally submit it with its specifics to the women's technical committee of the international gymnastics federation so the women's technical committee meets and they decide. Okay if this gymnast can land and six compete this trick gets named after her What how are we gonna value it. And so what they do. New tricks are not always the most the hardest ones. There's sometimes they're just novel and so there's precedent because they can value it. According to similar to similar tricks but with simone biles is always harder and so what they have to do they have to look at the hardest existing trick. And then think okay. How much higher should we go for this. And because no one has ever on the women's side even thought to compete a double salto. There's just not much precedent for valuing a double flip and so they valued it a couple tenths higher than the current most difficult vault which is also a byles fault which is now going to be the byles one. This'll be the two and so the biles one and the pro to nova which is sort of the the mirror image of the your chaco double pike. It has a front handspring double front. It's actually a little more dangerous than the your tank. Double pike because it's very easy to over rotate and if you're over rotated you will break your neck. The death the vault of death. Yeah and so. The president ova used to be awarded for. It's incredible danger. At a whopping seven point zero difficulty value and what that brought upon a lot of vaulters chucking it and chucking his it. When you like throw a trick that you're not like you don't think you can land but you just feel like i'm gonna try it and then it's valued so high that even if i landed on my posterior i'll make a final at all. Maybe even get on the podium and so the technical committee did not want people to be chucking vaults anymore especially not to be chucking dangerous faults and so they devalued the pro to nova and they have been loath to high value. Really dangerous faults they valued the byles to or the future byles to she hasn't landed in international competition yet at a six point six which is two tenths higher and you know simone and her team were hoping for a six point eight. I could see it valued like that but you know these are human people. The technical committee is a group of people and they all have their own interests. Some of those interests might be keeping the field competitive some of those interest might be quote unquote discouraging dangerous tricks. Some of own centrists might just be like simone on top for too long and some of them might be just like well. That's the next set of numbers you and you don't you don't know what's in the heart of this of this group of human people but because it's now the second incredible new skill that has come out with a value. That's a little bit lower really need a couple of tenths. We're not talking points than simone's team has expected. It is looking a little bit like a pattern and like she might be being punished slightly for her difficulty but unfortunately this creates narrative online of people saying these skills are banned. She can't do them she too good and that's also not true. The none of the bio skills are banned And she competes. Most of them will let me ask you this so it seems to me is looking from the outside. That the absence of the corolla family from usa gymnastics is influencing some of this right because even from the beginning simone has sort of been at loggerheads with corollas like sort of like a tumultuous relationship early on and like it feels to me like. It's not a coincidence that now these much more challenging moves are being that. She's attempting now now that the corollas are no longer affiliated with usa. Gymnastics is that sort of a fair observation or not. The line is not as direct as you're painting a bs the corollas. The absence of the curly's is the best thing that ever happened. To the humanity of the us gymnastics. It was not a positive environment. It enabled untold a balance of horrific abuse Not just the kind that you've read about in the papers. The crow is being gone is a net is one hundred percent net. Good and yes. Marta karolyi did not want people doing super high flying dangerous tricks like that because they just weren't a sure thing for metals. It wasn't really like she was. I don't really think she was really that worried about. People getting injured because she made people train on injuries. All the time allegedly so yeah. It is more like there is no one around. That can tell. Simone biles what to do. She's the most successful and famous gymnasts of all time. She speaks out against use almost every day. And they can't do anything about it and in a sport where gymnasts have mostly been told to be quiet and stay in line for like five decades. You love to see it on a site and to have this. Be just like this smart firecracker black athlete doing it. I love it. I love you love to see it. How do you kind of parse byles is like clear annoyance if maybe we could use a stronger word at the way that she is being treated by the technical committee vis-a-vis the point value with the idea that she's gonna win any way and she's for her like it seems like it's about more than points like she's doing this just because she wants to do it it's not she's not doing it to try to maximize points and yet it's galling turn offensive her to feel like it's not being scored correctly. Yeah i mean. It's a matter of principle at this point. Two tenths isn't going to be especially when something is valued at a at a you know six point. Six and most people are voting at a five point four. That's not going to make a difference. She's going to likely if she lands that in competition she will probably beat second by a point and so that's not it is more. I mean after the double double dismount and twenty nine thousand nine hundred was was felt to be undervalued. She was expecting it. And so it's more just. It's a little bit of pushback again. No one tells not even the f. I g. not even the women's technical committee tells simone biles what to do because even a slightly undervalued skill. She's going knock it out of the park and her execution so beautiful that she won't get docked on it. So yeah i mean i think that if this was them trying to get her to stop doing things like this. It's not the way to do it. I mean i. I don't think. I don't think humanity has it in us to get another bile skill between the teeny tiny time between now and tokyo. But i you know if anyone could do it for all of us. Let's point out that soon. Smiles is not superhuman. She did fall in this warm up. Meet and yeah. It's a warm-up meet for the olympics and she's still got a few months to be completely perfect but mistakes happening gymnastics yeah. They happen more often than they don't And it's very important for somebody. Likes mon biles. Who as joe pointed out is on. The older spectrum of sort of international elite gymnastics has been doing this for years. Has complained rightly all the time that her body is breaking down. It is really important that she not be training full routines very much because full routines on competition services are just injury opportunities waiting to happen and even when they go well. They are so hard on the body in there. So painful and so simone's going to make the team. She's going to leave the team. She has no. She has nothing to prove at the warm-up meats and so these are just for her to shake out cobwebs and she does not need to be dialed in her mind was obviously on the double pike in this meat as it should have been. And so yeah. Maybe she wasn't thinking that hard about bars or which is her least favorite event or floor where her new routine is really dynamic in its choreography and requires a lot more endurance than any of her other routines that i've ever seen it's also gorgeous. But so yeah. She doesn't need to be hitting four for four here nationals to be honest even at olympic trials. She doesn't need to be dialed in until she walks onto that competition.

"Really good tweet from a woman named hannah wilkes. He said fun fact about depression and anxiety for this never suffered the times when it's most urgently necessary to ask for help support respite the time when you need it the most of the times when you're least capable of communicating. What you need. And so. I'm hesitant to say this. Is naomi osaka fault for not being as articulate as she should have been the first time around. I do feel like if everybody had talked to each other. If the grand slams if the french open if they had been able to have like a genuine exchange views and ideas rather than this being expressed through like images of notes on twitter than maybe. This could have all gone differently. But i do. I do feel like the conversation that came out of. This was as a result of what osaka sat original. I agree with you on that. And i don't want to blame naomi osaka here for her statement for the reasons. Some the reasons you just start but what struck me is that. This is the wealthiest most successful women's athlete on the planet. She has a retinue of people working with her And it blows my mind that that this happened at all. I mean yes. Athletes now have much more agency and personal ability to say what they wanna say on social media but it seems clear to me that nobody her agent or coaches for corporate sponsors. Nobody was involved in that first statement which read like it was fast off on instagram. and nobody. this probably shouldn't have been naomi osaka asakusa job the painted the potential for blowback and not just the fact of the blowback but how the blowback might affect her emotionally. And you know. We did hear from the french open. Say that they reach out to osaka and presumably. That means her people after that first statement and got no response to try to discuss this. Because you know it's so obvious here that even after even if you feel like the first statement was intemperate and too broad and too accusatory into general. There was room here to try to figure something out and weather. Osaka and her team tried to do that with the french open. Is you know it seems like they didn't and according to the french open they didn't but it seems like there was room for accommodation here. As you said josh if people had communicated before this blew up and now yes it is exploded into something that it wasn't supposed to or feels like that. It should be about whether athletes should talk to reporters. That seems to be the red herring that everyone is going to focus on as result of osaka saying that she does have these mental health issues and needs to step away to deal with them. I don't think that anybody would have begrudged her in the first place if she had said you know what i don't want to do this i need some time off. I need some time off from this. If the second statement have been the first statement. I don't think that would have been much controversy about this at all. Do you think that she said okay. I need some time off. Like i've been dealing with depression. This is really difficult for me. I think we've kind of come a long way in a short amount of time like on this sort of stuff right like obviously like somebody like ricky williams didn't get opportunity in this atmosphere a green tea. A jennifer capriati people notable athletes in our lifetime. Who have dealt with mental health issues and had to sort of work around that. Like naomi has gotten a lot more sympathy for that and i do think that people would have been much more willing to accept her grace under these circumstances. But i find it interesting. You said that stuff in her teen maybe they should have got to think about. Is that those people work for her right. And so she some control of her career and so it's just it is possible that they couldn't they couldn't stop her from making that first statement and then after the statement and then with those other grand slams came out with a sort of a very heavy handed statement in response then they had to bring it in really back in and i wonder i wonder if this is all speculation right but i do wonder if she handled it. That'll her own in the first place and then in between there was a lot of talking and navigating the environment after that. So i'm going to list a bunch of different stuff about mary asaka and then maybe we can talk about it afterwards. And this is an incomplete list of the things that are really notable on interesting and important about her. Joel you mentioned the two thousand eighteen. Us open her. First grand slam win came and the like kind of biggest crucible. Ever in modern tennis with serena williams getting into that conflict with the chair umpire and the crowd. Booing booing doesn't really do justice. But it was just the most kind of intense possible environment and the least celebratory environment possible for ones like maiden grand slam title you also have her being representing japan internationally but also being hetian and being this sort of Representative for all different sorts of people. And that's like a mantle that she's worn really proudly but it's also like a weight that she carries on the other hand the fact that she is Japanese in particular. I think has lettered these enormous and norseman deals and made her one of the highest paid athletes in the world..

"Josh. Levin slates national editor. This hang up and listen for the week of may thirty first two thousand and twenty one first two thousand twenty one. The week of may thirty first two thousand twenty one on this week show. We're gonna talk about naomi. Osaka withdrawal from the french open and what that episode reveals about athletes mental health and athletes and the press also discussed the fate of atrocious fan behavior in nba arenas and rebecca shuman will join us to talk about simone. Biles latest feats of gymnastics excellence and whether international sport a crats are out to get her. I'm in washington. Dc and the author of queen host of slow-burn season. Four david duke. Also in dc back in our leading arms after two weeks away stephan fats us author of the books word. Freak and panic. Hello stephan page all. It's gonna be a double dose of sport. Acquatic behavior got the tennis and gymnastics. So i'm josh. That's joel by the way i hadn't been introduced yet. But that's fine. It's stephens getting back jonah. You just getting. you're just getting your ceiling hosting you know. Threw me off. Yeah that's what we're trying to do to the listeners to actual panel. But it's good to know that we've good misdirection. We're all friends here Joel anderson host of the upcoming slower and season six and the host of slow-burn season three anti is on the west coast and a slate staff writer. Just going to throw things in in a random order because a lot of things. Yeah you went with six three normally but again. It's all all in service of keeping people off their feet. So that's i'm with if i Listeners slow-burn season six. I am. I going to be confused. If i haven't listened to slow-burn season season three. It'll probably be really difficult. Because i think if you go to the slow burn feed. There's nothing from slow-burn six yet. But but you never know you have to give it a shot. I'm still trying to catch up on podcast right now. So you just never know. Maybe she should go to the feed. Anyway if you're listening to this and see what's there and listen to it just just to see season five now last wednesday naomi. Osaka said she wouldn't attend postmatch. News conferences at the french. Open writing on instagram. That i'm just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me on sunday. She won her opening match and kept her word. The french open find. Her and tennis officials threatened to kick her out of this and future events and then on monday asaka withdrew from the tournament. She said she had suffered long bouts of depression since winning her first major in two thousand eighteen and would now take some time away from the court. Joel there's a lot to discuss about. The events of the last few days from athlete mental health as josh said in the intro to news conferences at big sports events to the treatment of black and women athletes the way athletes express grievances on the way that sports authorities respond to them. But i want to start here with the observation. That is pretty banal. But i think encapsulates all of this. This whole episode just feels so profoundly sad and also so utterly avoidable. Yes i think you know first and foremost like everybody. I hope that now asakusa okay and on the road to getting better getting healthier and getting the help that she needs at this point. You'd have to say this seems to be much more about her health than media access. Post-match press conferences so clearly tennis can wait for another day. And i should stay right up front. I think people know this if they listen to the show regularly that. I'm not much of a tennis fan. i'm not. I rarely watch it. With the notable exceptions of serena naomi and like a lot of black americans who sort of culturally removed from the country club sports. I've developed a rooting interest in their success. In it's hard that the sound of little paternal. When i say this but she's young and i've always sort of worried about her because she's always seemed a little nervous a little gloomy in the spotlight right like it was a chore for her and so yeah it was just sort of hard to not want to wrap my arms around her after the two thousand eighteen. Us open when she beat serena williams and started to cry. Because i think everybody's sort of wanted to see serena win a major and she denied her soon. It was like a lot of young tennis players. Sooner was her idol of chief. Up a little. Guilty for denying serena in that moment so yeah. I felt like a really close to her. I wanted to. Oh man. I just want to hug little niamey right. I'll say it helps a little bit. That actually looks like one of my friend's daughters but that's neither here nor there. But i think what makes the most sense to me here is that we take naomi osaka at her word. So if answering postgame press conference questions fuels are herself doubt in mental health issues. This she should take whatever measures are appropriate. And i guess though. I don't understand how they morphed into a larger about the utility these press conferences. She said it was a problem. She didn't say that she'd been in conversation with the tennis players about this particular issue. It hasn't been a concern echoed by other major tennis figures at this moment. At least so i think because people don't like the press particularly the sports press particularly the european sports in his previous treatment of black female athletes. That's how this conversation has taken off so it's like is it okay to just say that this is naomi's issue leave it therefore moment so i'm i'm with you. On thinking that naomi osaka hs health and wellbeing is at the forefront and should be made here but the reason that the conversation went the places a dead was because in her original statement explaining that she wasn't doing press osaka did use the first person plural. She talked about athletes. Collectively were often sat here. And ask questions that we've been asked multiple times before or ask questions bring down into our minds. i'm just not going to subject myself to people. The doubt me she also talked about. Press conference is In terms of less about mental health unless about awkward stuff. And more in that initial statement about on-court situations in about how they affected her ability to win matches and so the kind of re response that came was from the press. Saying you're obligated to do this. Stop complaining stop whining. But i thought interestingly from her fellow players talking about not being critical of osaka hang it in less kind of harsh terms. This is an obligation. We do this win or lose. And there's this kind of cliche joel right about what it means to be a sport like you should shake your opponents hand after a match and it was kind of i think discussed in those terms like if you win you should talk about it and be a good sport and you know on a your opponent everything but also if you lose you have the grace to appear in front of the press and answer questions and whether it's being tough for whether it's being honorable or polite or whatever kind of values that these are these are the things that we should expect of whether there are athletes. Are you know things that were taught as we're kids. And so that's kind of how it started off. And in the second statement steph n where. She talked about being depressed since two thousand and eighteen and when she talked about things in a much more kind of person and intense personal way i think the conversation and then shifted and you know i thought there was a there was a really good tweet from a woman named hannah wilkes. He said fun fact about depression and anxiety for this never suffered the times when it's most urgently necessary to ask for help.
