Naomi Osaka rivals Serena Williams off the court with new children’s book

Serena Williams didn’t get rid of her tennis rivals even if she stepped out of the professional tennis world. Naomi Osaka published a children’s book soon after Serena launched her own. “So excited to finally announce the release of my first children’s book, The Way Champs Play.

It’s the first publishing project under my production company @hanakuma. I hope this book inspires kids to chase their dreams and encourages them to believe they can do anything they put their minds to. This book holds an extra special place in my heart as a portion of the proceeds will go to my foundation @playacademynaomi which works to support young girls in sport.

It officially releases on December 6th, but you can pre-order today at the link in my bio and get a signed bookplate to put inside your book!” wrote Naomi Osaka on Instagram.
