Naomi Osaka has dropped the trailer of a Netflix documentary about her life amid a press blackout lasting several months in which she has refused to speak with the media.

The Japanese tennis star, 23, withdrew from the French Open in May after refusing to take part in her press obligations and has not played in a tournament or spoken to the media since, citing her struggles with depression and anxiety.

Despite continuing her press blackout, the four-time Grand Slam champion's agent has confirmed that she will be competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games later this month and will take part in press conferences.  

The arrival of her Netflix documentary comes just weeks after she reappeared on social media to publicise a glossy new photo shoot for the August issue of Vogue Japan

The Netflix documentary is billed as an 'intimate look inside the life of one of the most gifted and complex athletes of her generation.'

Osaka pulled out of the French Open in May after only one match and declared she was stepping away from the court amid the furore around her refusal to attend the press conference. 

She was fined $15,000 by officials for refusing to appear in front of the media after the first-round match and a joint statement from the four Grand Slam organisers said she would face 'more substantial fines and future Grand Slam suspensions' if she continues her boycott.
