Naomi Osaka is a remarkable tennis player. She is ranked No. 2 in the world, with seven tournament victories and four Grand Slam titles, having twice won the U.S. Open (in 2018 and 2020) and the Australian Open (2019 and 2021).

In 19 career Grand Slams, she has won the tournament or lost by the fourth round: In other words, she is 12-0 — undefeated — in quarterfinals, semifinals and finals, the matches that count most and, consequently, have the most pressure.

More remarkable still, she has done all that at the age of 23. When most people her age are trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives, she is already the world’s highest paid female athlete, earning what is estimated to be in excess of $55 million a year.
