What Is Naomi Osaka's Net Worth? A Full Breakdown of How She Earned Her Fortune
Naomi Osaka's stellar record speaks for itself. She's been ranked the number one player by the Women's Tennis Association, making her the first Asian to hold the top ranking. And in 2018 and 2019, Osaka won her first two Grand Slam singles titles in back-to-back tournaments—a rare feat that hadn't been achieved since 2001. Fast-forward to 2020 and the four-time Grand Slam singles champion is officially the highest-earning female athlete ever.
Naturally, we're curious to know how the 23-year-old tennis star earned her fortune, but more importantly, what is Naomi Osaka's net worth? Read on for more details.
1. What is Naomi Osaka's Net worth?
According to Forbes, as of 2021, Osaka is worth $60 million, making her the highest-paid female athlete of all time. She's also ranked twelfth among the world's highest paid athletes (male and female), bumping ahead of famous names like Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams.
2. How much does Osaka make from playing tennis?
Some might assume that most of Osaka's earnings come from her tennis victories, but according to Forbes, Osaka pulled in a total of $5 million from her prize winnings—just a small fraction of her net worth.
3. Osaka made nearly 12 times her tennis earnings through endorsements
If you're wondering how the athlete managed to rake in an additional $55 million, it's all thanks to her many lucrative endorsement deals. Forbes reports that she currently has more than 20 sponsors, having worked with brands like Nike, Sweeygreen, Louis Vuitton, Airbnb and more.
4. She has two clothing lines with Nike
In November 2020, Osaka partnered with Nike to launch her first apparel collection, which features polos, sweatshirts and more active wear with her personal logo. Then, the tennis star launched a second collection in 2021, which includes crop tops, mesh bodysuits, T-shirts and more.
While speaking about the inspiration behind Osaka's new line, Carly Ellis, lead designer for NikeCourt, said in a statement, "Naomi is showing up everywhere, not just in sports. She’s at the highest ranks of her sport, she speaks out on matters of social justice, and she’s committed to providing spaces for young girls to follow new role models. As designers, by watching her interact in these different corners of culture, we can embed a far-reaching versatility in the collection, whether that’s through the number of pieces or through the intricacies of the details. Naomi had a hand in the whole process.”
5. And she has her own Barbie doll
In case you missed it, Barbie launched a doll in Osaka's likeness in July and it sold out within hours. On the day of the launch, Osaka shared a photo on Instagram and wrote, "Teamed up with Barbie back in 2019, but this time it’s officially official because today I’m introducing the Barbie Role Model Naomi Osaka doll. I really hope every child is reminded that they can be and do anything. This is really seeing a dream of mine come to life, having your own Barbie and potentially seeing little kids playing with it. Omg."
