In 2020, Naomi Osaka made history. She was labeled as the highest-earning female athlete of all time, by annual income that year. So how much is she worth and what else don’t we know about Naomi Osaka?
Naomi Osaka has been breaking records and making headlines all over the world because of her undeniable sporting talent. At the age of just 23, the tennis star is a four-time Grand Slam singles champion who achieved all four titles in consecutive years from 2018 to 2021.

What is Naomi Osaka's net worth?
Naomi Osaka's net worth was estimated in 2020 to be around $25 million. However, Naomi has made some serious cash since this figure was released.
Naomi's overall earnings for 2020—the year that allowed her to break records as the most well-paid female athlete per annum—was $37.4 Million.
In 2020, Naomi only won $3.4 million on the court, meaning that $34 Million of her earnings came from brand endorsements.
And the star's earning capacity doesn't stop there, Naomi has already earned $60 Million in 2021!
Naomi is Number 12 on Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes of 2021. The star tied with Tiger Woods, who also earned $60 million in total earnings in 2021. Again, proving her popularity as a sporting legend, of this $60 Million, $55 million came from endorsements.
It's not all about filling up the bank account though. Naomi has made multiple philanthropic contributions throughout her career, including the launch of her Play Academy in August 2020. The Nike collaboration aims to increase access to sport for girls and young women by investing in athletic initiatives in the tennis star's birthplace of Japan, as well as Los Angeles, her current location, and Haiti, her father's native country. She is also content to part with her own earnings, pledging to donate her winnings from the Western & Southern Open in Ohio to the 2021 earthquake relief fund in Haiti.
Really hurts to see all the devastation that’s going on in Haiti, and I feel like we really can’t catch a break. I’m about to play a tournament this week and I’ll give all the prize money to relief efforts for Haiti. I know our ancestors blood is strong we’ll keep rising 🇭🇹❤️🙏🏾August 14, 2021
