Strictly speaking from an athletic point of view, has there been any media attention on what appears to be notable weight gain?
Is there an underlying health issue or was this just an unflattering outfit? Seems uncharacteristic for a 23 year old pro athlete.

I think your reading too far into it. People’s weight fluctuates so you don’t look the exact same as you did a day or two ago, plus it can definitely just be an outfit.

Also, why is weight gain coined in a negative manner so often? Weight gain for some is a near necessity, and most of the time athletes will bulk up and gain weight for various reasons, so long as the bulk doesn’t remove their ability to compete.

So a few posts down, a thread about Kim’s come back is impeded, in part, because she’s overweight. That post has 3 pages and counting… This thread has 9 posts and 2 of them are people defending Osaka and are lit with virtue signaling.

What? Can’t comment on Osaka’s weight because she’s black, hence protected? While a 30something white woman is fair game?
Lol, 1, who said all that?
2. Kim is clearly much bigger then Naomi.

Yes, side effects of the antidepressant

Wouldn't dare compare Kim's size to Naomi's.. These pics speak for themselves.

Yes, people’s weight fluctuates, but I don’t have a flat stomach on Monday and wake up with a beer belly on Tuesday…

The lady had 3 kids. It's amazing she's made it this far. I think people have unrealistic expectations, in general.

I'm not judging her, i'm just saying the person who I quoted made this about race saying we can't criticize Osaka but these two aren't comparable.

Serena has won several slams while looking pretty obese. Weight has positive effects in women’s tennis to a certain extent. Osaka is still far from the stage where weight becomes a problem.

Did you perchance miss the part where Clijsters came back after a long, long hiatus and is a mother of three children while Osaka is active on the tour, has no children and is in her twenties? Aside from which, do you honestly think both rank equal on the overweight scale? Really?

Naomi isn't overweight lol, and this is coming from someone that is REALLY not a fan of hers anymore. This idea that people have to be twigs is both harmful and ridiculous.

I know. I was just making an argument to that poster who was indulging in whataboutery. Even if somebody insists Osaka is somehow overweight, saying what about Clijsters makes no sense.

Funniest part of this critique is that Osaka was serving for the match even with her “weight gain” and her issues to my eyes were completely mental - rust from being away from the game for a few months along with nerves and the crowd getting to her. She still had a play on every shot Leylah threw at her, she just had a bad run of UEs.

even the MP was a technically perfect shot, she just missed it by a foot.

I suppose you could say she is out of shape and that’s unarguable, but the real impact was mental rust and not anything physical. She’s 24 FFS.

People who have to 'see it to believe it' CANNOT know what you are talking about. And they are a vast majority among us since the dawn of our species.

That is why there is no thread on how to help her improve her mind and prevent this sad state she is in.
That is why there is a thread on her weight gain.

Weight gain is visible and mind is not.

So we are forced to witness a right for all the parasites to keep her in the state she is in as long as she generates profit they gain.
While she does not have a mind able to save itself from being exploited by stupid.

Clearly someone will eventually explain that she cannot be a slave because she earns a lot of money and there are no chains - as eyes can see none. Cause majority of us humans cannot see her mind crying for help, but can see the money parasites grab by exploiting her like a slave. Money is not freedom if a mind is enslaved.

Dead simple.

She is not overweight for the general population. But, for an elite athlete, in a sport that requires both quickness and endurance, she is carrying too much weight. With all the resources she has, she should be able to get herself in better shape than this.

shes overweight as a pro athlete. compare her to the two finalists leylah and radacanu, both are fit and trim girls.

Unrealistic?
This is how women with 3 kids can look (and professional tennis players should look):
This is plain stupid. Genetics are very different and Kate has obviously very good ones. Also hormones and contraceptive pills can impact women weight.
I dislike Osaka’s behavior but to fat shame her only helps to validate all her tantrums

I would think theres a large gap between fatshaming or hating and acknowledging shes probably heavier than she would be at the peak of her athletic abilities

I don’t wanna comment on her weight but her movement on court hasn’t been as good as it was during the 2019USO - 2020AO. But her game isn’t about grinding down her opponents so I guess it’s no trouble as long as she gets things mentally right.
