Naomi Osaka Working With A Therapist After Being Heckled On Court

Naomi Osaka is seeing a therapist after heckling incident at Indian wells. The idea was suggested by her sister Mari Osaka and it has already yielded benefits for Naomi Osaka.

Osaka said:

“My sister seemed very concerned for me. I’ve been trying a lot of different things because I tend to internalize things, and I always want to do everything myself.

My coach said, ‘You hire a coach for tennis, for fitness. The mind is such a big thing. If you can get a professional to help you out 0.5 percent, that alone is worth it.’”

Naomi Osaka was in tears after a fan heckled her in the match against Veronika Kudermetova. Osaka said that this incident reminded her of the 2001 incident in which the Indian Wells crowd yelled racial slurs in a match involving Venus and Serena Williams.
