Naomi Osaka has been a strong advocate for mental health since stepping back from tennis in 2021. However, in 2022 she made her great return to the tennis court, playing at the Melbourne Summer Set 1. Although she has had to deal with several injuries, she continues to push through, and credits therapy and prioritizing her health for her healing. Osaka launched the Evolve Sports Agency in 2022, and this is also the year that she formed a media production company, Hana Kuma, in partnership with Lebron James’ SpringHill Company. Hana Kuma is aimed at creating empowering and culturally-relevant content as Osaka explained in a statement: “I’m so excited for what we are building at Hana Kuma. We will bring stories to life with this goal in mind: to make unique perspectives feel universal and inspire people along the way.”
