Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka will participate in the Paris-2024 Summer Olympics.

As reports, this was confirmed by the Japan Tennis Association.

Although Naomi is currently ranked 125th in the world, as a former champion of Grand Slam tournaments, she received a special license for Paris-2024.

It should be noted that the individual competitions of women's tennis players in Paris-2024 will start on July 27.
