Recall that the 23-year-old made an announcement a few days to Roland Garros that she has been marred with series of depression since bagging her maiden Grand Slam in 2018.
Therefore, she made a prior notice to shun any kind of press at the Roland Garros to protect his mental health.
Osaka who won her first-round match against Patricia Maria Tig in straight sets was slammed with a $15,000 (£10,570) fine for not doing a post-match conference.
Hence, the Federation of French Tennis and other organisers made a joint statement saying that Osaka could be expelled from the tournament if she continued to shun them.
She announced her decision to take "some time away from the court now".
"I never wanted to be a distraction," Osaka said
"This isn't a situation I ever imagined or intended when I posted a few days ago. I think now the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my wellbeing is that I withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in Paris."
"When the time is right I want to work with the Tour to discuss ways we can make things better for the players, press and fans," she added.
French Tennis Federation president Gilles Moreton said the withdrawal of Osaka was a 'sorry' case, wishing her a quick recovery.
"We are sorry and sad for Naomi," Moreton added. "We wish her the best and quickest possible recovery, and we look forward to having Naomi at our tournament next year," he said.
He said concerned tennis bodies reiterate their commitment to improving the well-being of athletes, including the aspect of their experiences with the media.
