Naomi Osaka is now a Barbie girl. In a Barbie Role Models world. 

Mattel recently released a Naomi Osaka Barbie doll, honoring the four-time Grand Slam tennis champion as part of the brand's Barbie Role Models doll line that showcases inspiring women from around the world. 

"I hope every child is reminded that they can be and do anything," Osaka tweeted Monday to announce the collaboration.

Osaka's plastic doll is designed by Carlyle Nuera and features her wearing a Nike tennis dress inspired by the 23-year-old's Australian Open outfit. She's sporting Nike shoes, visor and a Yonex tennis racket. 

The doll is currently sold out "due to high demand" after this week's release

In 2019, the Osaka was one of 20 women gifted unique dolls created in their own likeness as part of Barbie's "Shero" line. 

Osaka has had both a national and global impact, having been heavily involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and regularly showcasing her Japanese roots. She is representing Japan at the Tokyo Olympic Games. 

Osaka recently opened up about her mental health in describing what prompted her to withdraw from the French Open and calling for the sport to better accommodate its athletes. She said standing up for her mental health was "all worth it."
