Serena Williams Speaks Out with Support for Naomi Osaka After Her Withdrawal from French Open

Serena Williams has sent a message of support for Naomi Osaka after the young tennis star decided to withdraw from the 2021 French Open.

Naomi previously announced that she wouldn’t be doing press at the tournament and would accept any fines that were imposed on her. She said the press conferences were affecting her mental health as they gave her anxiety during an already stressful time. Eventually, Naomi decided to withdraw from the tournament completely after she was threatened with expulsion.

While doing her own press conference after a win in round one on Monday (May 31), Serena commented on the news.

“Honestly I just found out before I walked into the press conference, so that’s the extent of it right now for me,” Serena told reporters.

Dakota Johnson, Harry Styles, Serena Williams & More Star in Gucci Beloved's Talk Show-Inspired Campaign!

Gucci‘s latest campaign for their Beloved line features so many stars!

The campaign features Dakota Johnson, Harry Styles, Serena Williams, Awkwafina, Diane Keaton, and Sienna Miller on the set of James Corden‘s talk show.

“We decided to show the concept of ‘beloved’ in an ironic way in the campaign, being inspired by the fact that bags are the protagonists in my life and in the lives of many other people,” creative director Alessandro Michele said in a statement. “We went back in time to the original TV talk shows, where the protagonist is the bag itself, the big star. Very often these creations are named after influential women who conditioned the habits and customs of many. It is precisely because they have great personalities that in the industry we gave them these powerful names; and now we have them in a show and twisted with the idea that there were two stars: the bag and the actual talent. A game of cross-references between the two great protagonists.”

During the chat, she called Meghan “the strongest person I know” following her highly publicized interview with husband Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey..

Meghan is a great person and I think the epitome of strength, the epitome of confidence, the epitome of just selflessness, and the epitome of everything is just her and everything that she’s gone through. I know it’s not easy, and you can see from the interview that it wasn’t easy, but she had so much poise and she still had so much class,” she said.

She added that she doesn’t “know anyone else that could handle everything on such a global scale the way that she’s had to handle things that are just untrue — minute after minute. Not even day after day. Just minute after minute, just another untrue allegation being thrown at her.”

There’s also a new movie coming out that involves Meghan Markle.

Serena Williams Shares Message of Support for Friend Meghan Markle Following Oprah Interview

Serena Williams is sticking up for her friend Meghan Markle.

Shortly after the 39-year-old Duchess’ tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on Sunday night (March 7), the 39-year-old tennis pro took to Instagram to share a message of support for her friend.

“I am so proud of you for being so brave,” Serena captioned her post. “I know it is never easy. You are strong- both you and Harry. I love you. I adore you. Your friend S.”

“Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion,” Serena started. “She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she experienced.”

“I know first hand the sexism and racism institutions and the media use to vilify women and people of color minimize us, to break us down and demonize us,” Serena continued. “We must recognize our obligation and decry malicious, unfounded gossip and tabloid journalism. The mental health consequences of systemic oppression and victimization are devastating, isolating and all too often lethal.”

In her interview, Meghan revealed that the second child she is currently expecting with husband Prince Harry will be a girl.

“I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society that is driven by respect,” Serena concluded her message. “Keep in your memory the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
