Naomi Osaka is a young tennis player that beat one of the sports’ biggest stars, Venus Williams and has experienced some mental health issues ever since. Her decision to skip press and take care of herself somehow has caused global reaction ranging from mockery to brands like Nike, Mastercard, Sweetgreen and more showing her support.

In a recent press conference, Williams was asked how did she cope with the stress of the media. And she gave the perfect smackdown of a response. She said, “For me, personally, 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. So no matter what you say or what you write, you’ll never light a candle to me.” And she added, “That’s how I deal with it. But each person deals with it differently.”
