K•Swiss Signs Gael Monfils. See ya Nike. He’s Got His Own Line in Sight.
The current ATP tour #18 has two career ATP titles and is a seven-time ATP tour finalist. “Gaël is, without question, one of the most exciting players on the tour," said K•Swiss Sports Marketing Director, Erik Vervloet. "He has a flair for the game that is hard to ignore and he is a title-winning threat on all surfaces. We are very excited to have him with our brand and think he will deliver some real punch to K•Swiss."
Agreed. Love to watch the guy play myself. “I am thrilled to join such an iconic tennis brand with a great reputation for athlete collaboration,” said Monfils. “I am looking forward to working with K•Swiss on developing my own line of clothes to launch next year and growing our relationship in the years to come.” Cool but I hope he doesn't completely abandon the signature sleevless styles like Rafa did.
Monfils will wear his new brand at Roland Garros. He'll be able to choose from the new collection some of which he is wearing in the image above: KSwiss Signature Crew, $50 in vivid blue, Training Shorts, $45 in navy and custom Pro Speedster Tennis shoes (regular style runs $80).
