Venus Williams is yet another athlete telling their truth in the midst of Naomi Osaka's boycott on the French Open due to mental health reasons. 

As Blavity previously reported, Williams' younger sister, Serena, spoke out in support of Osaka's decision to opt out of mandatory news conferences. Ultimately, the 23-year-old received a $15,000 fine for refusing to appear before the press and announced Monday that she would be withdrawing from the tournament. 

During a post-match news conference following her loss to Russian tennis player Ekaterina Alexandrova, the 40-year-old made it abundantly clear how she copes with dealing with the press.

“For me personally, how I cope, how I deal with it, was that I know every single person asking me a question can’t play as well as I can and never will,” she said. “So no matter what you say, or what you write, you’ll never light a candle to me.”

“That’s how I deal with it. But each person deals with it differently,” she continued.
