Tennis star Naomi Osaka is a superhero in the eyes of many a fan, as the 22-year-old world number 3 goes around winning titles throughout the world.

Now the Tennis star has a Marvel superhero named 'Naomi' modeled after her as the new original promotional superhero character for Japanese watch manufacturer Citizen Watch. Naomi Osaka is the brand ambassador for the watch company.
