World number two Naomi Osaka says she is withdrawing from the French Open as a result of controversy over her refusal to speak to the media during the tournament.
On Sunday a joint statement from Grand Slam organisers said Osaka could face expulsion from the tournament.
The 23-year-old said last week she would not do news conferences at Roland Garros to protect her mental health.
She said on Monday she “never wanted to be a distraction” to the event.
In a tweet, Osaka revealed she had “suffered long bouts of depression” since winning her first Grand Slam title in 2018.
The Japanese four-time major winner added that she gets “huge waves of anxiety” before speaking to the world’s media.
