THIS Is Why Naomi Osaka Had To Dip On These Fools...,

7news |  A tennis journalist has been slammed after asking American young gun Coco Gauff a shocking question on the opening day of the French Open.

The 17-year-old burst onto the scene in 2019 when she knocked out her idol Venus Williams in the opening round at Wimbledon before claiming another upset win over the 40-year-old, seven-time Grand Slam champion at last year’s Australian Open.

Gauff will combine with Venus Williams in the doubles tournament at this year’s French Open – and was therefore asked why she was so often compared to the Williams sisters.

Unfortunately for her, the journalist asking the question suggested it could be ‘because she’s black’.

“You are often compared to the Williams sisters. Maybe it’s because you’re black,” the journalist asked.

“But I guess it’s because you’re talented and maybe American too.

“We could have a final between you and Serena (Williams). Is it something you hope for? I mean, 22 years separate you girls.”

The question was shot down by tennis fans on social media, with many citing it as an example of why Naomi Osaka was refusing to do media at Roland Garros.
