John Isner has joined the Fila team. The number-one ranked American male tennis player for the past four seasons, the partnership continues the brand’s heritage of sponsoring elite players in its core sport.
“We are proud to have American tennis star John Isner join our strong lineup of ambassadors,” said Jon Epstein, president of Fila North America. “His ability on-court, his pursuit of excellence and his passion for the game make him an excellent representative for the Fila brand.”
Isner, 30, is the 11th ranked player on the ATP World Tour. He turned pro in 2007 and has won 10 ATP singles titles and three doubles titles. He is known for having one of the fastest and most powerful serves in the game. He currently ranks 10th for the most aces in the history of the ATP. Isner also played the longest match in tennis history at Wimbledon in 2010. Under the terms of the deal, he will wear Fila exclusively during his matches as well as in training.
