Naomi Osaka: Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Her father was inspired by watching the Williams sisters play at the 1999 French Open. Having little exposure towards the sport of tennis, François began the tennis training of his two daughters.

Training his children in the US, François and his wife decided their daughters would always play for Japan. Her sister Mari Osaka is also a professional tennis player.

Later, his younger daughter turned out to be the only Japanese Grand Slam singles champion. She is Naomi Osaka, born to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother on October 16, 1997, in Osaka, Japan. 

Naomi Osaka Stats

Osaka gained significant fame at the age of 16. In 2016, she was through to the final round at WTA Finals at the age of 18. She fell to Caroline Wozniacki in the finals. Nevertheless, Osaka broke into the top 50 of the WTA rankings for the first time. The same year, she made her maiden appearance at a Grand Slam in Melbourne. She was also crowned as the WTA ‘Newcomer of the Year.’

The year 2018 showered prosperity over Osaka. She won her first Grand Slam by defeating her childhood idol Serena Williams. She also became the first Japanese to contest and win a Grand Slam final.

She continued her major winning streak at the Australian Open 2019, where she defeated Petra Kvitova in the finals. She also reached the highest ranking in her career by securing the world number one position. 

After her Australian Open victory, her career took a turn. She parted ways with her coach Sascha Bajin and she was title-less for a few months. Osaka trained under Jermaine Jenkins but she called off her association with him within six months. At present, she trains under Wim Fissette.

In her hometown tournament at Pan Pacific Open 2019 in Osaka, the Japanese ace finally ended her title-less run.  The following week, she went on to clinch the title in Beijing, China by knocking down Ashleigh Barty in the finals.

She loves playing on hard courts and she doesn’t really enjoy playing on the grass courts of Wimbledon.

Her total prize money aggregates to $14,617,235 in the year 2020.

Osaka is dating rapper YBN Cordae. Once as a fangirl, she accepted Creed 2 premiere ‘date’ with Michael B Jordan.
