Japanese tennis sensation Naomi Osaka not only hit the cash jackpot with her historic US Open victory — she struck a blow for racial equality, according to a former Miss Japan.
Following herthrashing of childhood idol Serena Williams in New York earlier this month, Osaka is set to become a global marketing force as sponsors prepare to break the bank to sign the year-old. But Priyanka Yoshikawa, who two years ago was crowned Miss Japan, believes Osaka can also help break down cultural barriers in a country where multi-racial children make up just two percent of those born annually.

But Osaka is set to become the highest profile, not to mention the richest. Despite having her match win streak snapped by Karolina Pliskova in Tokyo at the weekend, Osaka can take consolation in her ballooning financial worth.
Osaka is also endorsed by Yonex, Japanese food company Nissin and watch maker Citizen. A new three-year deal with car maker Nissan underlined her earning power after becoming the first Japanese player to win a grand slam singles title.
