Tennis champion Naomi Osaka is launching her own sports agency called Evolve after her contract with IMG expired last year.
Osaka is one of the highest-paid woman athlete in sports. In 2021, she pulled in nearly $60 million in prize money and endorsements from Louis Vuitton, Nike, Mastercard, Tag Heuer, and Beats by Dre.
As per Bleacher Report, she said” “I’ve spent my career doing things my way, even when people told me that it wasn’t what was expected or traditional. Evolve is the natural next step in my journey as both an athlete and businesswoman, as well as a way to continue being myself and doing things my way.”
The tennis star is further partnering with longtime agent Stuart Duguid to launch the new agency.
