Naomi Osaka has been warned she could be expelled from the French Open if she continues to refuse to speak to the media.

The four-time Grand Slam singles champion has been fined $15,000 after she did not conduct a post-match press conference following her first-round win against Romanian Patricia Maria Tig on Sunday.

Osaka announced last Wednesday via social media that she would not participate in mandatory media interviews, citing mental health reasons.
