- The docuseries, simply titled Naomi Osaka, is going to detail how the athlete feels about competing and having so much pressure on her
Netflix released a trailer for Naomi Osaka - a new docuseries set to premiere on July 16 - and based on a first look, it's already shaping up to be one of the most compelling sports documentaries in recent times.
The three-part series is a brutally honest look at Osaka's life, as told by her. It not only chronicles the tennis star's rise to fame but also her struggles with being in the public eye all the time while advocating for social justice and dealing with the never-ending pressures of staying on top.
The release of the docuseries couldn't come at a more poignant time after the star withdrew from the French Open over her media availability and the fallout that followed, according to SBNation.
Following her withdrawal from the French Open due to mental health concerns, Naomi will compete in the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
She later announced that she would not be competing in this year's Wimbledon Championship.
