Media Plays An Important Role In Boosting The Career Of Athletes
Media plays an important role in boosting the career of athletes, claims Rafael Nadal. Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal has made a big claim about the media.
The great tennis player Rafael Nadal believes that media plays an important role in enhancing the career of an athlete.
Nadal’s statement comes at a time when Naomi Osaka of Japan, the world’s No. 2 women’s tennis player, spoke of distance from the media during the French Open the previous day. However, Nadal has praised Osaka’s decision.
13-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal said in a press conference on Friday, “I can understand Osaka, but according to me, the media is the one who writes about our achievements.
If it were not so, we would be like this ,we don’t have athletes like they are now. Without the media, we wouldn’t have got the recognition that the world has now and maybe we wouldn’t have been that popular either.”
On the other hand, Japan’s Osaka recently said that she would stay away from the media during the French Open, as media persons do not take care of the mental health of the athletes during press talks.
The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) had said that it was the responsibility of four-time Grand Slam champion Osaka to talk to the media.
“We have the mental health of every individual. We have a professional team that takes care of the mental health of the players,” the WTA said in its statement.
The first round of the French Open is scheduled to begin on Sunday. In such a situation, this statement of two veteran athletes is very important.
