Tennis and Social Justice – The New York Times

If you follow tennis, you know that Naomi Osaka, 22, won the US Open title this weekend. But, writes The Times, she included not only some of the world’s toughest tennis players, but some of the most thorny social issues.

The article continues:

She handled the pressure on both fronts and returned to the fore in women’s tennis with a gritty 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory on Saturday. She wore seven masks with different names for each of her matches to honor black victims of violence. She said it motivated her to want more people to say more names and she walked into court on Saturday wearing a mask named Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was shot and killed in Cleveland by a white police officer in 2014 .

It’s about getting people to talk, Osaka said at the awards ceremony.
