Naomi Osaka Mari Osaka Yonex EZONE 98 Tennis Racket

Yonex has just introduced Naomi Osaka’s latest signature EZONE 98 tennis racket. This time, the racket enlists Naomi Osaka’s sister Mari Osaka for a family-friendly design.

“My sister and I have always talked about designing a racket and seeing it come to life is very special – the design is so detailed and unique,” ​​says Naomi. The image refers to the duo’s childhood, as their mother often referred to them as dragons, representing power, luck and strength. Mari’s graphic sees dragons with spider lilies in gold and purple – the representation of a woman’s strength and beauty.

“The dragons represent an unwavering, fighting spirit,” Mari said. “I hope the racket gives Naomi strength and confidence every time she steps on the court, even when I’m not with her.”

The OSAKA EZONE is scheduled to launch on August 25 and will make its debut at the Silicon Valley Classic, a WTA 500 event in San Jose, California.
