In a recent Bloomberg interview, Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka revealed that her newfound interest in the cryptocurrency industry was kindled by meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin.

The four-time Grand Slam champion said that she was reading a lot about the Shiba Inu-inspired coin on Twitter:  

I know that online, everything is getting bigger. I remember reading about Dogecoin … there’s going to be something new and interesting that’s going to pop up.

After surpassing Serena Williams as the highest-paid female athlete in history, Osaka can definitely afford to splurge cash on meme coins. This year, she once again topped Forbes with a whopping $60 million.
