Three-time Grand Slam singles champion Naomi Osaka arrived in Haiti on Monday last for a “surprise and discreet visit.”
An official from the Haitian Ministry of Sports said that Osaka, 22, was accompanied by a few members of her family and is expected to visit the famous Citadelle Laferrière, in Milot (North).
The winner of the 2019 Australian Open, is reportedly in Haiti to film a documentary series directed by Netflix and dedicated to her life as a successful athlete.
Netflix wrote on its website, “The docuseries will follow the multiple times Grand Slam champion in the high-pressure year running up to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.”
In February, Netflix had announced the documentary series, but there is no information about a release date as yet.
This is Osaka’s third visit to Haiti. Her last visit was in 2018, after defeating Serena Williams in the 2018 US Open finals.
