Tournament organizers said Osaka was fined for failing to "honor her contractual media obligations." 


Osaka announced that she would not participate in any media events in a post last week. The 23-year-old cited mental health concerns as the reason for her decision.


Osaka acknowledged the likelihood of a fine in her initial post, expressing hope that "the considerable amount that I get fined for this will go towards a mental health charity."


Osaka, a four-time Grand Slam tournament winner, addressed the fine in a tweet after her 6-4, 7-6 (4) victory over 63rd-ranked Patricia Maria Tig on Sunday, May 30.


"Anger is a lack of understanding," Osaka tweeted. "Change makes people uncomfortable."
