Being associated to the MasterCard INC. as its brand’s ambassador, the Japanese Tennis icon will exhibit the logo of the brand on her visors at the time of matches.
It should be noted that the US Sports Brand Nike which has partnered with Naomi, hardly allows any other brand’s endorsement to run on their outfit.
Despite such business policy, Nike has allowed Naomi to carry the logos of Japanese brand Nissin, Japanese airway company ANA and now MasterCard.
