Hillary Clinton tweeted that she was inspired by Women’s Tennis Star Naomi Osaka’s “courage” after she pulled out of the French Open over controversy from refusing to do interviews and meet her tour media obligations, citing her own mental health.

Hillary wrote “I’m inspired by @NaomiOsaka’s courage. This is a moment for all of us—especially the press—to ask why it’s not enough to let her stellar performance on the court speak for itself.”

NBA star Stephen Curry tweeted “You shouldnt ever have to make a decison like this-but so damn impressive taking the high road when the powers that be dont protect their own. major respect @naomiosaka

On ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman reacted to Osaka’s decision to withdraw.
