From majors to manga Japan tennis ace Osaka to star in comic book

Japan's star tennis player Naomi Osaka is all set to make her mark in the world of manga as she has inspired a new character in a comic book series which will run in a Japanese magazine from late December.

The work is called "Unrivaled Naomi Tenka-ichi" (Naomi without equal) and is carried out by the Kamikita twins (Futago Kamikita), cartoonists and designers of characters especially known for their adaptations to the manga format of the "Pretty Cure" franchise. The manga character features pink and purple hair, an orange visor, a purple tennis racket and a green shirt. The noodle company removed the commercial and apologised to Osaka, adding that they did not intend to whitewash her.

We're still in the midst of a pandemic crisis, which means that policy still has a lot to do", said OECD chief economist Laurence Boone.

Born to a Haitian-American father and a Japanese mother, Osaka is a sensation in Japan for his sporting achievements and it is the image of several brands in the Asian country. The 36-year-old German, Bajin led Naomi Osaka to back-to-back Grand Slam wins at the US Open in 2018 and the Australian Open in 2019.

Tennis fans have witnessed a dramatic transformation of Osaka in 2020. The 28-year-old Czech won her first tournament of the year in Brisbane and reached the final in Rome in September, but she failed to get beyond the round of 32 at the season's three Grand Slams.
