Naomi Osaka Is Now the Highest Paid Female Athlete Ever!

Naomi Osaka is making history.

The 22-year-old Japanese tennis player brought in over $37 million in earnings in the past year, according to Forbes.

The total is more than any other female athlete in history has made in a 12 month period, including Serena Williams, who she beat at the U.S. Open final in 2018.

Naomi earned $37.4 million in the last year from prize money and endorsements, “setting an all-time earnings record for a female athlete in a single year; Maria Sharapova previously held the record with $29.7 million in 2015,” the outlet reported.

Maria Sharapova, Li Na, Serena Williams and now Naomi Osaka are the only women to rank among the 100 top earners in sports since 2012.

She currently has 15 endorsement partners, including brands like Nissan Motor, Shiseido and Yonex, and “almost all are worth seven figures annually.”

Earlier in the year, it was revealed that she will be the subject of this Netflix documentary. Get the details!
