Report: U.S. Open Champion Naomi Osaka Set To Sign HUGE Contract With Adidas

Reports claim U.S. Open winner Naomi Osaka is about to sign a megadeal with Adidas and it’s well deserved.

Osaka defeated Serena Williams, her idol, in front of the world but the victory was marred by the former champion throwing a temper tantrum, calling out the umpire, playing the sexist and racism cards in the same breath.

According to a new report from The Times, the 20-year-old is expected to sign the deal on Thursday that is worth an estimated $8.5 million annually. Osaka, who is already on Adidas’ payroll, is only reportedly making a “six-figure” salary that will expire this year.

If the contract goes through, this would be the biggest deal the sportswear giant has ever given to a female tennis player and it could propel Osaka up the ranks on Forbes’ 2018 list of highest paid female athletes, which Williams currently leads.

In 2010, tennis star Maria Sharapova made history by signing the most lucrative female sports contract ever with Nike. The deal was a 10-year contract worth an estimated $70 million.

However, a spokesperson for Adidas would not disclose any contractual information or rumors about its current or future partnerships with Osaka.
