Naomi Osaka champions mental health with her net worth

Rattled by a derogatory remark from a spectator, Naomi Osaka went on to lose to Veronika Kudermetova of Russia at Indian Wells, California.

The highest paid female athlete in the world was playing at the BNP Paribas Open when the heckler shouted, “you suck”.

Osaka is ranked No. 1 by the Women's Tennis Association and is the first Asian player to hold the top ranking in singles.

Last year, she was fined $15,000 for skipping press meets during the French Open owing to mental health issues.

Osaka champions mental health causes and the fine was matched by mindfulness app CALM to help charities.

The Japanese American tennis player has a net worth of $45 million.

With the help of Nike, Osaka has helped empower young girls in Haiti and LA to pursue their athletic interests.

Osaka's goal is to help change the lives of girls of color across the world.
