Naomi Osaka returned to the spotlight for the first time since withdrawing from the French Open in May and skipping Wimbledon, posing on the red carpet at The ESPYS on Saturday night.

The world’s highest-paid female athlete faced a slew of photographers in New York, with one being heard urging her, “Nice smile” as cameras clicked furiously. Osaka offered a faint closed-mouth smile in response.

Actor Anthony Mackie hosted the show from The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport. WNBA player Maya Moore was to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, while triathlete Chris Nikic was to be honored with the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance.
