Naomi Osaka is known for keeping us on our toes with how she dominates the tennis court. Combine that with all of her exciting partnerships, and it’s safe to say it’s hard to keep up.

For her latest endeavor, the young icon has joined Fortnite’s Icon Series, Hypebae reports. Osaka’s announcement makes her the first female athlete to be on the video game’s series.

“The Icon Series is the ultimate celebration of the most dynamic figures in culture for Fortnite’s audience of millions, and there’s no one more perfect than Naomi Osaka to join the Series as the first female athlete,” Nate Nanzer, Global VP of Partnerships at Epic Games, said in a statement.

Not only is Osaka making history, but she now joins fellow star athlete LeBron James and artists Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak.

“I’ve been playing Fortnite for a long time — when I saw LeBron had joined the Icon Series, it made me want to join the Fortnite family too. It’s really amazing to be able to connect with so many people around the world,” she shared.
