Streaming giants Netflix has released the trailer for the documentary centered on four-time grand slam champion, Naomi Osaka. The three-part docuseries would focus on her journey to sports and what many call a sudden rise to international stardom after her win at the 2018 grand slam.
The trailer opens with the 23-years-old athlete looking around confused and surprised at her fame.
“The series is about Naomi’s journey, within a snapshot of her life,” director Garrett Bradley in a press statement released alongside the trailer.
“But it’s also about life’s purpose, about personal worth. About the courage that it takes to allow one’s personal values to inform their work and vice versa. More than anything, I’d hope people can feel the power of empathy and to feel encouraged to take chances in life, perhaps especially in moments where the stakes can feel impossibly high.”
The documentary will start streaming on Netflix on July 16.
Added to her Netflix documentary, Osaka also July 11th, 2021 won Best Athlete in Women’s Sports at the 2021 ESPY Awards.
While receiving her award, the athlete said;
“I know this year has been really…tough for a lot of us,” she said, per People. “For me, I just want to say, I really love you guys and this is my first ESPYs. So it’s really cool to be surrounded by all these incredible athletes. I think all of you guys are really cool and I watch some of you on TV, so it’s really surreal to be here. Thank you so much, and I really appreciate it.”
