Naomi Osaka is back showing off her curves on Instagram after hitting out at fans who told her to maintain an innocent image.

Naomi Osaka showed off some new jewellery and a bright red bikini in a series of sizzling photographs on social media on Friday.

The Australian Open champion, who is currently enjoying a break from the tour after winning her fourth career grand slam, looked to be enjoying the first days of spring in the US as she lounged poolside.

“Sunny and icey all at the same time,” the 23-year-old wrote. “Thank you Cordae.”

Osaka’s rapper boyfriend, born Cordae Amari Dunston, appears to have gifted her several new pieces including a watch, bracelet and pendant necklace after she crushed Serena Williams’ dreams of a 24th grand slam title.

It comes after Osaka was forced to hit back at critics when she posted photos of herself in a bikini to Instagram last year.

The Japanese-born star, who has won two US Opens and two Australian Opens, defended her right to wear whatever she wants in response to the backlash that accompanied her social media activity.

Osaka wrote on Twitter this week the amount of people taking offence to her bikini snaps was “creeping me out”.

“I just wanna say it’s creeping me out how many people are commenting @ me to maintain my ‘innocent image’ and ‘don’t try to be someone your not’,” Osaka said.

“You don’t know me, I’m 22, I wear swimsuits to the pool. Why do you feel like you can comment on what I can wear?”

But this time fans — including Cordae who responded with love-heart eye emojis — delivered an overwhelmingly positive response.
