In 2018, the world got to know the real Naomi Osaka when she beat Serena Williams in the final of the US Open. Since then, the Japanese player won three more Grand Slam titles and achieved many other things. At the age of 24, she is already the richest female athlete in the world, according to Forbes.
However, Naomi’s performance nowadays is quite far from outstanding. Despite her struggles on the court, she is doing pretty well off court.
According to reports, she recently purchased a big mansion in California which is worth a fortune.
Naomi Osaka buys a $6.3 million mansion
TMZ recently reported that Japanese superstar Naomi Osaka bought a $6.3 million massive mansion in California. Famous singer Nick Lachey previously owned this mansion, who bought this in 2020 for $5.1 million. After living for a year, Lachey made a profit of almost $1.3 million by selling the mansion to the Japanese player.
The Tarzana mansion Naomi bought is 7000 square feet in size and has a big tennis court inside the property. The property also includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a big kitchen. Apart from all that, you can also find a swimming pool and a playhouse inside the property.
Interestingly this is not the first time Naomi bought something like this. In 2019, she spent $6.9 million to buy a house. Previously the lavish mansion was owned by Nick Jonas, another famous singer. With Naomi’s stature, she can afford to buy all these houses. According to Forbes, her net worth is around $60 million.

No doubt, Naomi is achieving great things off the court. However, she hasn’t done great on the tennis court since her withdrawal from the French Open last year. In 2022, she didn’t start well in Australia, as she lost in the third round at the Australian Open. As a result, her ranking dropped massively (80).
That means the Japanese player now can’t get a direct entry in the big tournaments, including the Grand Slam event. However, she recently received a wild card entry in the Indian Wells, which is great news for the former World no.1. If Naomi wins that tournament, she will improve her ranking and possibly get her form back for the upcoming tournaments.
Will we see the previous Naomi in the next tournaments? Let us know in the comments.
