Naomi Osaka responded to conservative pundit Megyn Kelly who said the tennis player isn’t being honest about why she doesn’t want to do media interviews, the Hill reported

Kelly, who is a former Fox and NBC News host, attacked Osaka for appearing on several magazine covers and said the 23-year-old backed out of competing in Wimbledon because she doesn’t like answering “[questions] she can’t control."

"Poor @naomiosaka blocked me while taking a shot at me (guess she's only tough on the courts). She is apparently arguing that she shot her many covers b/4 publicly claiming she was too socially anxious to deal w/press. Truth is she just doesn't like Qs she can't control. Admit it," Kelly said. 

Osaka shot down her accusations and urged the conservative commentator to "do better."

"Seeing as you’re a journalist I would’ve assumed you would take the time to research what the lead times are for magazines, if you did that you would’ve found out I shot all of my covers last year," Osaka said in a now-deleted tweet. "Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan."
