ASICS has today announced a new multi-year agreement with French tennis star Gaël Monfils, a partnership which has seen his ranking rise from the ATP World top 100 to #6.
Monfils became an ASICS worldwide tennis ambassador in 2013 and has since earned himself a steady top-10 position.
Known for his dynamic play and agility around the court, the 30 year old, had his best year yet in 2016 with his biggest title win in Washington D.C., a U.S. Open semi-final place and qualification for his first season-ending championships.
The extension to his contract will hope to see continued success for Monfils and ASICS, the fastest growing tennis brand in Europe and number one tennis footwear brand in France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
The Frenchman will resume his contribution to the development of new tennis collections, offering his unique insight on the needs of top-level players, as well as his personal style and providing feedback to the designers at ASICS.
