Following reports of a new deal with adidas worth $10 million USD, additional information has surfaced regarding what may be in store for U.S. Open Champion Naomi Osaka. The Japanese-Haitian born tennis star may now see $8.5 million USD per-year in an upcoming re-up with the Three Stripes. While the amount of years has not been shared as of yet this may make the 20-year-old the largest female contract holder under the adidas umbrella. Osaka’s fame has shot up since defeating Serena Williams — who last won the U.S. Open Grand Slam Singles in 2014 — in this year’s Finals and her current agreement is set to expire sometime this year.
Stay tuned for additional information regarding Osaka’s new deal and let us know if you think she’s next to hold the torch after Serena. Tennis fans can also read deeper into the controversy regarding Williams’ receiving a $17,000 USD following her loss.
