    BLM. Stop it with politics. It's sports.

    As nonsensical as Kpop documentaries. Celebrities being celebrities. People being people. Yawn. Nothing fresh here.

    Shows like this led me to cancel Netflix. Why showcase a spoiled brat who woefully overestimates public interest in her opinions? This was as dull as her interviews, which I hope she continues to avoid!

    for someone who is so scarred by press, she sure loves being on camera, doing SI swimsuit and a reality tv series, she is a pampered princess who is playing the victim role to avoid doing something her job requires but doesnt want to do. definite miss.

    The list of synonyms for the word "pander" seems to grow longer and longer each day.

    Unfortunately Osaka will not be joining that small group of high performance athletes who are actually interesting. With nothing much to work with, the director attempted to make this docuseries artistic & thoughtful? Or maybe not. We gave up during the first episode after discovering there was nothing sufficiently engaging or interesting about Osaka to make us care enough to drift along for one dreary minute longer.

    Poco profunda, poco dice, poco deja ver de este nuevo caso de infancia perdida y vida colapsada para otra deportista mas de deportes individuales torturada psicológicamente desde su más corta infancia.

    I don't understand the fuss about the series. It remains really superficial and reads like an add to the athlete. For someone who doesn't like media attention and scrutiny is doing everything to achieve the contrary. I am however a fan of the athlete and her game but not this type of show-business. We end up not knowing more that we already knew.

    She's a great tennis player, no doubt about that, and the documentary is interesting but I'm not sure what to think about her anymore.... maybe she does have some issues but I really think she dropped out of the Wimbledon tournament because she was a diva who didn't want to do what is normal - talking to the press. Arrogance can ruin your career, Naomi.
