Naomi Osaka, 23, gears up for the release of her Netflix documentary series Naomi Osaka: Playing By Her Own Rules on July 16 by promoting its cover photo and posting an open message. The tennis star reveals she was “terrified” to let people see the new film because it gives a highly-anticipated look into her life–and hopes they’ll understand how decisions are made in private. In one picture from this Friday’s premiere event in Tokyo celebrating the show before releasing worldwide on Saturday (July 20), Osaka can be seen sitting cross-legged at center court while wearing sneakers under pants with Nike swooshes showing; sunglasses over eyes closed as if sleeping.”
“So this has been in the process for the past 2 1/2 years,” the reigning U.S. Open tennis champ‘s message began.
“In light of everything that happened recently I was terrified of this being released,” she added, most likely referring to her decision to withdraw from the French Open and Wimbledon to focus on her mental health. “This isn’t like a tennis match where I win or lose and from there people can say whether I did well or not. This is a look into my life from certain time period and I can’t fight the feeling of wondering how it will be received. This is in some ways my soul and a reflection of who I am.”
Naomi went on to explain that she hopes “I can share my experiences and show people why I make the choices I do.”
“If it doesn’t that’s cool too, it took me a while but I realized that I can’t please everyone and I’m really not trying to,” she wrote. “When I go to sleep at night I can only hope I am at peace with myself and I hope the same rings true for anyone reading this.”
She ended the email with an upbeat yet sincere message. “I’m so excited/nervous that you guys will get to see it soon,” she wrote before adding, “Hopefully I hope you all enjoy it and stay safe.”
Naomi Osaka’s Netflix series gives an inside look into her life in the two years after she beat the fellow champion, Serena Williams, at the 2018 U.S. Open victory and received a number of supportive comments from fans like, “After watching, I feel like we all have a little Naomi Osaka inside of us.” One fan wrote “I love how you make me laugh when it is so hard to,” while another said, “You’re such an inspiration!”
