The video streaming service launched the first glimpse of her new sporting title on Tuesday, which focuses on the life of the four-time Grand Slam champion and her struggles to be catapulted into the public eye.
“Naomi Osaka,” as told personally by the tennis star, reflects on the 23-year-old’s upbringing and how her victory at the US Open in 2018 turned her into an “overnight superstar”.
“The series is about Naomi’s journey, in a snapshot of her life,” said director Garrett Bradley, whose film “Time” was nominated for an Oscar for best feature documentary, in a press release.
“But it is also about the purpose of life, the personal worth, the courage it takes to allow personal values to inform his work and vice versa.
“More than anything, I hope people can feel the power of empathy and feel encouraged to take risks in life, perhaps especially at times when the stakes can seem insanely high.”
The Japanese world No.2 has revealed that she has “suffered from long periods of depression” since winning her first Grand Slam title in 2018.
“I feel like the platform I have right now is something I took for granted, and for me, I feel like I should be using it for something,” he said. she said in a press release for the new series. “I believe that instead of following you have to make your own way.”
The three-part documentary will air on July 16.
