Naomi Osaka — the world’s No. 3 tennis player — serves as the inspiration for a new manga character next month in a Japanese comic book aimed at teenage women, the publishers said.

 

Osaka shared a photo of her cartoon depiction Saturday on social media. The manga character features pink and purple hair, an orange visor, a purple tennis racket and a green shirt.

“Growing up reading manga/watching anime was something that bonded me and my sister immensely so this is really exciting for both of us,” Osaka tweeted.

 

The 23-year-old tennis star was born in Osaka, Japan, and moved to the United States when she was 3. Her older sister, Mari, helped to develop Naomi’s manga character.

Osaka — the world’s highest-paid female athlete — beat Victoria Azarenka in three sets to win the 2020 U.S. Open on Sept. 12 in Flushing, N.Y. The former world No. 1 also won the 2018 U.S. Open and 2019 Australian Open.
