What will be even more exciting for her fans is that Netflix has been making a documentary on the life of Naomi Osaka for a long time, and it seems to be ready now. The documentary will be released on July 13, 2021, after the Wimbledon Championships 2021. This is a Netflix original documentary and will consist of three episodes.

The documentary will cover both the personal and professional life of the 23-years-old athlete. It’ll trace her journey right from the beginning as a child to becoming a 4-time Grand Slam champion. The audience will get to watch the struggle, sufferings, hard work, and efforts of Osaka in the upcoming documentary.

There are a number of players whose documentaries are coming out soon. One of them is World No. 1 Novak Djokovic whose documentary will mostly be released at the time of the US Open. Amazon Prime is filming the documentary at the moment and the work has been going on for around four years.

Naomi Osaka in the 2021 tennis season so far

Osaka began the season on a really high note by winning her fourth Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2021. However, she hasn’t been in great form since then.

She lost to Maria Sakkari in the quarters of the Miami Open 2021. After that, she began her clay-court season at the Mutua Madrid Open 2021, but that wasn’t good for her either. The World No. 2 player lost to Karolina Muchova in the second round of the Madrid Open.

She had high expectations from the Italian Open 2021 but that too proved to be really poor for her. Osaka suffered a humiliating defeat in the first round of the tournament against Jessica Pegula. Clay hasn’t been her forte, but she is no longer even giving tough fights to her opponents on that surface.

After Rome, Osaka will head to Paris for the French Open 2021. Despite her poor form, fans have really high expectations from her. Will Osaka be able to beat the odds and win her first Roland Garros title this year?
