Over the years, Naomi Osaka has overcome all odds to carve a niche for herself in tennis. At 20, she won her first Grand Slam title. It was at the US Open in 2018, where she defeated American legend, Serena Williams in the summit clash to etch her name in the glory books.

Subsequently, she has gone on to add three more major titles to take her tally to four Grand Slam titles. Further, riding on her Australian Open victory in 2019, Osaka attained the Number 1 ranking in women’s singles. However, the 24-year-old has endured a mixed 2022 season. She had early losses at the Australian Open and the French Open. Her best result this year has been a runners-up finish in Miami. Recently, she announced a new partnership with a renowned brand.
