Naomi Osaka is one of the most recognizable and loved tennis players in the world for various reasons. First, the Japanese sensation astonished the tennis community and beyond with the fantastic runs that allowed her to conquer great events such as Indian Wells (2018), the US Open (2018), and the Australian Open (2019).
Naomi also has a rather quirky and likable personality that is extremely appreciated by her fans.
Tennis legend Chriss Evert posted a rather nice tweet praising Osaka to say: “I love @naomiosaka because she’s  always authentic and  introspective in becoming better, as a person and as a tennis player. As I follow her journey, she already has become more evolved…You go girl!”
