Fila‘s currently leading WTA names are Jelena Jankovic, Julia Goerges and Yaroslava Shvedova, as you know from my regular fashion updates, and now I’m glad to inform you that the brand’s WTA team has welcomed a new player – world No.413 Jamie Loeb of the United States, 2015 NCAA Division 1 Champion.
The 20-year-old Loeb, who turned pro after a stellar college career at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and who will continue her training at the John McEnroe Tennis Academy in New York, has entered a multi-year partnership with Fila, which will help her financially in chasing her dream in the WTA world.
“Jamie’s strong character and competitive drive make her primed for great success. We look forward to supporting Jamie as we play a role in her journey to fulfill her longtime goal to play on the WTA Tour,” said Jon Epstein, President of FILA USA.
Loeb said: “It’s a dream come true to wear the same brand as so many tennis champions past and present, as I embark on my own pro tennis career.”
This partnership was officially launched today at the US Open, when Loeb played Caroline Wozniacki in the first round, losing 6-2 6-0. Loeb wore the Fila Fall Platinum Asymmetrical Tank in teal piranha and the Fila Fall Platinum Ruffle Skirt in the same color.
