Former World No. 1 Naomi Osaka is probably one of the most dominant forces in sports, as of today. Ever since she won her first Grand Slam title in 2018, the Japanese starlet has been climbing to great heights. The success enjoyed by her, both on and off the court, has been astonishing.

With time gone by, Naomi Osaka has grown in every possible way, be it by becoming more famous or by succeeding tremendously in her profession. The Japanese star is considered to be one of the most marketable athletes in the world. She endorses a number of brands, ranging from Nissan Motors to Shiseido. She even enjoys certain privileges, like designing her own tennis racquet, which she used at the US Open 2020

Osaka had a short caption along with the picture which said, “Wow this is actually crazy. Honored to be Louis Vuitton’s newest House Ambassador. Funny story: I first bought my mom an LV bag when I was 16 as a birthday present and it’s kinda been a tradition since. Do I call this a full circle moment? Yes.”

Much to Naomi Osaka’s surprise, she received a comment by none other than the pop star herself, Nicki Minaj, who wrote, “Congratulations sister.” Osaka had a hilarious reply and wrote, If she wants me to move in she should just say that.”
