There is some positive news for fans of young tennis star Naomi Osaka. Without even playing a single match in 2021, she has already made the headlines. Recently, the three-time Grand Slam champion Osaka became the house ambassador of Louis Vuitton. It is definitely a big honor for her since she has always been fond of the products that the French fashion company manufactures.

Osaka also narrated an intriguing tale about her childhood in which she described her first experience with a Louis Vuitton bag.

“Funny story: I first bought my mom a 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,” added the US Open 2020 winner.

It was certainly a mesmerizing story where a 16-year-old Osaka gifted an LV bag to her mother. Perhaps, due to this, she believed that it was a full-circle moment for her.

It appears that happiness is mutual between Osaka and Louis Vuitton. Even the company seems quite excited to work with Osaka from now onwards. Recently, the famous French designer and the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, welcomed Osaka on board.

Ghesquiere put an Instagram story and Osaka reposted it, writing a ‘Thank you’ in return. This is certainly a big moment for the Japanese star player. Fans will hope that she continues to play like a champion and sign many more exciting deals with big companies.

She suffered an injury at the Cincinnati Masters 2020 final and thus ended as the runner-up. However, she defeated the in-form Victoria Azarenka in the finals of the US Open 2020 to lift her third Grand Slam title. After that, she caught up with a back injury before the French Open 2020 and could not play for the rest of the year.

Osaka will return to the court at the upcoming Australian Open 2021. She will hope to play the way she did in 2019 and will certainly try to win her second Australian Open title. Will Osaka be able to conquer Melbourne yet again?
