The Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka has become the highest paid female athlete in the world for the third time in a row. Forbes reports it.
According to the publication, he earned $51.1 million in 2022. About $50 million came from non-tournament winnings. Due to injuries, Osaka had to miss many competitions.
In addition, the athlete was left without one of her sponsors: the FTX crypto exchange went bankrupt in November. However, Osaka managed to earn an impressive amount through entrepreneurship.
The tennis player co-founded a production company, a talent agency and a beauty brand. He also acted as an investor and began supporting the pickleball team, a sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping pong.
Previously, Naomi Osaka and Nike teamed up again to create a joint sportswear collection. We talk about it in more detail here.
