  • Naomi Osaka, one of the most exciting talents in tennis, is also a regular head-turner with her style

Women have in recent years risen to the occasion in various sports fields. The negative stereotype that sports is a preserve for the male gender has been broken down with women, despite many obstacles, taking their rightful place in sports.

From Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce's dominance in athletics to Naomi Osaka's admirable rise in tennis to Alexia Putellas' incredible football skills, women in sports have really come of age.

1. Naomi Osaka

Osaka recently made headlines after she withdrew from the Australian Open. She later on confirmed that she was expecting her first child.

Known for her business acumen through her sports agency Evolve, the Japanese star is also known for her fashion sense. She had deals with Nike and Levi's and donned Louis Vuitton at the Met Gala in 2021.

2. Skylar Diggins

The American women's professional basketballer is a five-time All-star. She became the first female athlete to be signed by Jay Z's sports management company Roc Nation Sports in 2013.

Essence has previously captured Diggins' style in 10 amazing photos. She also has an endorsement deal with Nike.

3. Sydney Carter

Another basketballer on the list. Carter is a retired professional player who is the coach of Texas A&M’s Division 1 women’s team.

Carter has often impressed with her bold and beautiful choices of dressing on the courtside. She recently came under criticism over her choice to wear bubblegum-pink leather pants from Fashion Nova, a white turtleneck, and heels as reported by Glamour.

4. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

It won't be so hard to pick out Fraser-Pryce from a lineup of 100 metres or 200 metres participants. The Jamaican makes the list purely because of her bold hairstyles.

The multiple World champion has always been in the spotlight for the colour of the wigs she always wears before taking to the pitch.

5. Lauren James

Lauren James has taken to her career at Chelsea Women's easily. She is a rising star in Emma Hayes' team. She is also the sister of Chelsea's mainstay Reece James.

Away from the field, James has previously admitted that:

"My playing style and my sense of style aren’t too different! I love to feel comfortable in the clothes I wear, just like when I’m playing football. Comfort is key. I wear a lot of tracksuits, and a lot of loose-fitted clothing – nothing too baggy like my brother though," as quoted by Versus.

Africa's most beautiful footballers

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, and some of these footballers have gained a cult-like following amongst their fans because of their good looks.

Female footballers nowadays get high-level recognition like their male counterparts.

The question of who is the hottest amongst them always pops up on many sports platforms discussing female players.
