FILA Athletes Return to London Donning Limited Edition Performance Tennis Collections
24th June 2021
World No.1 Ash Barty to Introduce Trailblazer Collection Honoring Evonne Goolagong Cawley;
Sofia Kenin, John Isner to Wear Brooks Brothers Collaborative Collection;
White Line and Essentials Collections Will Also Debut
FILA sponsored athletes will return to London this July sporting a trio of all-new grass court tennis collections. World No.1 and global superstar Ash Barty will introduce the Trailblazer collection, an exclusive offering that pays homage to former FILA brand ambassador and multiple Grand Slam champion Evonne Goolagong Cawley. Sofia Kenin, Kiki Bertens, John Isner, Sam Querrey and Mackie McDonald will wear a standout collaborative collection created in partnership with Brooks Brothers, while additional FILA athletes will debut the brand’s new White Line and Essentials collections.
Barty’s specially-designed Trailblazer collection commemorates the 50th anniversary of Goolagong Cawley’s incredible triumph in London in 1971. Barty – the second Australian to ascend to the World No.1 ranking after mentor and friend Goolagong Cawley – will wear the Trailblazer collection to showcase the profound impact that her countrywoman has left on the sport and in Indigenous communities across Australia.
Said Barty of the occasion: “Evonne truly embodies what it means to be a trailblazer, and her inspiring career has paved the way for young Indigenous women such as myself to see a future for themselves in tennis. It is my honor to wear this commemorative collection from FILA in celebration not only of her momentous victories on the court, but also her incredible legacy off of it.”
