A new documentary series following Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka has been announced as a joint project between Netflix and Uninterrupted. The series goes behind the scenes of the life of the two-time Grand Slam champion who became the first Asian player to reach the number 1 singles ranking after winning her first Grand Slam at the US Open in 2018 and second at the Australian Open in 2019.
Recording for the series began in August 2019 with the Australian Open and will follow Osaka on tour through the 2020 Grand Slams while preparing for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
To be able to tell my story and let people in during this big year, working with a team that really understands me, has been a rewarding experience. It won’t look like a traditional sports documentary, and I’m so excited to share it with everyone. – Naomi Osaka
