Naomi Osaka is currently the biggest name in the WTA circuit, both on and off the court. She is just 23 and won her 4th grand slam earlier this year at Melbourne. With her serious baseline game, she goes in as the favorite in any hard court tournament she plays.
Off the court, she is very active on social media and marketing front. She manages a great balance in her social media activity by creating social awareness on various topics from time to time.
She also gives her fans a peek into her personal life. Naomi is vocal about various things, including her crushes and inspirations. At a reality show a few months back, she revealed that Serena Williams and Rihanna are her biggest inspiration.
Naomi Osaka’s obsession with Rihanna
The world is very well aware of the World No.2s obsession with Rihanna. In a fun interview last year when asked about who she’d like to switch with for a day, she said she would want to be Rihanna.
“Rihanna. Because I know that she works really hard, but no one ever sees it, so I just want to see her work ethic. Rihanna can do whatever she wants,” the Japanese replied. “The beautiful bad gal now. The one and only Rih Rih. I started off taking a lot from her but now I figured out what works for me and I’m just kinda chilling,”
Today, she out of the blue tweeted that she would pass out if she ever saw Rihanna. She wrote: “If I see Rihanna ima pass out.”
Osaka lost in the second round of the Madrid Open, her first Clay court tournament in almost 2 years. She will play in Rome next in build up to the French Open.
