Naomi Osaka is off to a solid start in Flushing Meadows. Although Marie Bouzkova presented a challenge, Osaka managed to raise her level to post a 6-4, 6-1 score in her opener amongst a packed New York crowd. Boxing legend, Mike Tyson and Hall of Fame basketball star Steve Nash were amidst the crowd on Monday night. Osaka lit up Arthur Ashe Stadium as she frequently does, but now she's also lighting up the streets of New York City.

The US Open's No. 3 seed is currently a part of Sweetgreen's latest campaign that aims to celebrate their partnership, which is also perfectly timed around the major event. Osaka is the first athlete ambassador for the health-conscious fast-food company and the two joined forces in May.


All across the city, the four-time major champion can be spotted on billboards and signage, with phrases such as: "Eat like a pro," "Icons eat their greens" and "Queens get their greens." In addition to the signage, Sweetgreens is hosting giveaways this week as well. The company gave away bucket hats signed by the 23-year-old star and will be hosting a refreshing retreat on 14th St and University on Tuesday.

The signed bucket hats are already gone, but bottled green tea will be available along with the cutest outdoor setup that is heavily tennis themed.

Up next for Osaka is 20-year-old qualifier Olga Danilovic.
