NAOMI OSAKA MOVED BY MESSAGES FROM FAMILIES OF AHMAUD ARBERY, TRAYVON MARTIN. A postmatch interview with Naomi Osaka on Tuesday featured video messages from the parents of Ahmaud Arbery and Trayvon Martin, two shooting victims whom Osaka has remembered on her face masks during the US Open. … Osaka was visibly struck by the messages, saying on the telecast: “I don’t know. I feel like I’m a vessel, at this point, and in order to spread awareness and, hopefully, it’s not going to dull the pain, but hopefully I can, you know, help with anything that they need.” Osaka later said at a news conference that she “was just trying really hard not to cry.”
