Naomi Osaka Makes History By Starting Own Sports Agency, per Report

Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka has reportedly left her previous agency, IMG, with the intention of starting her own agency, EVOLVE, according to Sportico.

She is the first female athlete to take full control of her business endeavors and attempt to build an agency, per Sportico.

“I’ve spent my career doing things my way, even when people told me that it wasn’t what was expected or traditional,” Osaka said in an email to Sportico’s Kurt Badenhausen. “Evolve is the natural next step in my journey as both an athlete and businesswoman, as well as a way to continue being myself and doing things my way.”
