At the Australian Open, the 25-year-old rocked a custom dress in pink/blue/white/teal blue. It was an asymmetrical, colorblocked design just like the rest of Nike’s Melbourne collection. At the Grand Slam, Osaka introduced a new tennis racquet, a seventh generation Yonex EZONE.

The Japanese’s custom butterfly shoes paid homage to the moment last year when a butterfly landed on her face during a match in Melbourne. On her hand, we could see her limited-edition green TAG Heuer Aquaracer watch.

In New York, the four-time major champion debuted a lilac Nike dress and NikeCourt Air Zoom GP Turbos inspired by her French bulldog Butta.

That was also her outfit at her final tournament in 2022, the Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis in Tokyo.

What do you think about Osaka’s style? Does she have the X-factor to become the next Maria Sharapova or Serena Williams in terms of tennis fashion?

  1. I would call her fashion mediocore this year, alot of ripped pieces sewn it together, forcing the colors combo to work when it doesnt.
    Most of the time her shoes dont match any of her outfits.
    But the best outfit she wore is probably that teal crop top + vibrant neon skirt and matching jacket she wore in Madrid, the color combo blend perfectly well. And suitable against the red clay!

  2. Agree with Ric. Osaka’s outfits were very random with atrocious colours. Especially the Roland Garros outfit, which was just plain ugly.
