Introducing the Naomi Osaka x Takashi Murakami EZONE Racquet by Yonex.
Unveiled by the Japanese tennis star on social media, she adds, "... so happy with this one, was always an admirer of Takashi Murakami 村上隆 so to be able to finally collaborate together is really a dream. Infinite thank you’s to Yonex Tennis for trusting me with the vision and because this project wouldn’t have come to life so amazingly without them"
Naomi and Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind, white-based racquet with an iconic Murakami cherry blossom design.
Naomi will debut the new cosmetic at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Naomi x Murakami EZONE racquet will only be used by Naomi and is not for sale. Naomi will auction a small number of racquets with all proceeds benefiting Play Academy with Naomi Osaka (PANO).
