  • Her parents first met in Japan, and after getting married following family disputes, they moved to New York, and later, settled down in Florida. At that time, Naomi was 3 years old.
  • She and her sister use their mother’s surname instead of their father’s; because when they were in Japan, their “Osaka” surname made it easier for them to get admission in schools and get rented houses.

  • She and her sister started playing tennis at a young age, initially under their father, and later, at the ProWorld Tennis Academy in Delray, Florida. Though she holds the dual-citizenship of both the U.S. and Japan, when she started playing professional tennis, her father took a bold decision and registered them with the Japanese Tennis Association; as the United States Tennis Association didn’t show much interest in them.
