The sport of tennis undoubtedly draws massive attention worldwide. Within the sport, there are some hugely influential names. On the women’s circuit, Japanese icon Naomi Osaka has a gigantic influence around the globe. She is the highest earning female athlete for the past two years, and continues to shine on and off the court. In a latest addition to her brand, the 4-time Grand Slam winner has announced a new skincare collection.

The year 2021 started off brilliantly for Osaka, who won her second Australian Open crown in Melbourne. Ever since then, her graph saw a steady decline, and she failed to make it count in any other tournament this year. The downward spiral means that the current World No.3 will also see a fall in her rankings very soon. Though her performance on the court has been slightly inconsistent, she continues to work wonders off the court.
