YONEX Makes Footwear Contract with Martina Hingis

20 September 2013

We are pleased to announce that we have made a footwear contract with Martina Hingis, including tennis shoes and running shoes.

Martina became the world’s No. 1 player at the tender age of 16 with three Grand Slam titles in 1997, and gained brilliant success in her career. She was praised for her great achievement of being inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame at just 32 years old in July this year. Furthermore Martina has made a comeback in the WTA Tour, and currently plays in doubles competitions.

In addition to a tennis racquet contract with Martina, we also supply her footwear to support her sporting activities. She trains with YONEX shoes in preparation for tournaments and is pleased with the cushioning, “Today’s game requires power so it’s very important to train hard. YONEX shoes have great cushioning performance so that I can train with less fatigue. It’s so helpful for me.”
