Tom Brady spoke about Naomi Osaka and Marshawn Lynch
Tom Brady felt for tennis star Naomi Osaka, who made headlines recently for dropping out of the French Open after getting fined for skipping a press conference due to her mental health.
“You feel for the 22-year-olds that are in the position that – look, there’s a lot of things happening in their life,” Brady said. “We all go through things. I went through a lot of things in my late teens, early 20s. I didn’t know how to deal with a lot of things that were coming because there was no training guide for how to deal with what was happening in my life.
“Now as someone that’s twice her age, you have compassion and empathy for that. You hope that she can deal with that because you wouldn’t want that to take away from her true joy of playing tennis. You don’t want something like that taking away from what her joy should be.”

After showing empathy for Osaka, Brady called back a moment prior to the Patriots-Seahawks Super Bowl XLIX matchup.
“Like Marshawn Lynch, that was the most beautiful thing saying, ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined.’ I mean, he put no mental energy into any question and he didn’t get fined for that.,” Brady said. “It’s a very hard thing to do, I wish I could just go, ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined.’ I’ve said that 50 times! I’ve never done it. One day I’ll do it before I retire.”
