If you’d guess that spending 24 hours with Naomi Osaka would involve a lot of athletic endeavors…you’d be right. The 23-year-old tennis star, who has distinguished herself with her uncompromising support for the Black Lives Matter movement as well as her prodigious skills on the court, spends an unsurprisingly large amount of time practicing her game, but she still manages to make time for fun (and, of course, a good breakfast).
Osaka’s day starts off with morning practice and some gym time in the afternoon, but before any of that, there’s focaccia topped with avocado and smoked salmon. After some time on the court, she breaks for a chirashi bowl; then it’s time for another workout, because when you’re ranked number one by the Women’s Tennis Association, there are no days off. While training for the Australian Open, she devotes time to daily treatment work with a physiotherapist. “I’ll probably be nervous when I get there,” she says. “I’m not so sure.”
After the exercise portion of the day is completed, it’s time for fashion! Osaka heads to a Levi’s shoot, where a glam team takes the necessary COVID-19 precautions to get Osaka camera-ready. “I’m really happy with how it went; it was really pretty,” notes Osaka after the shoot—but really, how could any shoot not go well with Osaka in front of the camera?
