World number one Osaka signs with Nike

The Japanese, who had previously been tied to rival Adidas, will first wear Nike gear at the Stuttgart Grand Prix later this month, the U.S. sportswear maker said.

Osaka has won the last two Grand Slams, having become the first ever Japanese player to win one of the four majors when she overcame Serena Williams at the U.S. Open in September.

Her ascent to the top of the women’s game has made her a hot marketable commodity for the world’s top brands. Osaka already has deals with Japanese airline All Nippon Airways, car manufacturer Nissan and watch company Citizen, amongst others.
