Taking care of your mental and physical health is super important for everyone. I think for those who are celebrity athletes, both of those are crucial to them maintaining a healthy career.
If you remember Naoimi Osaka refused to do post match interviews for a while. Then, she withdrew from matches and critics attempted to destroy her for it. She made a decision that was crucial to her well being and I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Now, we see another celebrity athlete, Serena Williams, doing the same thing.
