Mental Health App Calm To Cover Tennis Players' Grand Slam Media Appearance Fines

Along with a $15,000 USD donation to a mental health organization in support of Naomi Osaka.

Earlier this week, Naomi Osaka withdrew from the French Open after being fined $15,000 USD for choosing not to speak to the press. She explained in her Instagram post that she’s “often felt that people have no regard for athletes’ mental health and this rings true whenever [she sees] a press conference or [partakes] in one.”

In light of the situation and in support of the tennis star’s decision, mental health app Calm has announced that it will pay all fines for athletes who choose to opt out of their 2021 Grand Slam media appearances. Additionally, the platform will allocate $15,000 USD to France-based global sporting movement Laureus to further aid its mental health initiatives for children and young people. On top of that, Calm has shared that it will match any fine with a $15,000 USD donation to Laureus.

Head over to Calm’s Instagram page for more details.
