Twenty-year-old, Naomi Osaka has garnered instant fame with her recent US Open win against Serena Williams. Not only did the young rising tennis pro collect a $3.8 million-dollar paycheck, she also set herself up for a reported new deal with Adidas, which could possibly make her one of the highest-paid women in sports.
The Times stated that the contract could be worth an estimated $8.5 million dollars a year. This would be the biggest deal for a female athlete, helping Osaka rise up the Forbes list to second-highest paid female athlete this year, behind fellow tennis star, Caroline Wozniacki.
The new deal for Osaka could be a foreshadowing of amazing things to come for the young athlete. Other endorsements are said to be in the works. It looks like we are definitely going to see more of Osaka on and off the court.
