Tennis Player Victoria Azarenka Signs Long Term Deal with Wilson
January 10, 2012
Wilson Sporting Goods has signed a long term partnership with world no. 3 Victoria (Vika) Azarenka.
“I’m extremely excited to be changing to Wilson’s new Juice racket. The power and spin that I feel with this racket is insane and I look forward to seeing what I can do with it,” said Azarenka. In addition to the Wilson Juice tennis racket, Azarenka will accessorize with the matching new blue Tour tennis bag and exclusive Wilson Emotisorb shock absorber every time she steps on to the court.
Renaud Vallon, global tour director for Wilson, said: “Vika’s talent is undeniable, and she has been one of the tour’s most consistent performers. Our goal is to provide the best equipment to help elevate her game and help her reach her goal of winning her first Grand Slam. She is a very powerful player, with a dynamic personality and we are very thrilled to have her join the Wilson family.”
In 2011, Azarenka finished at a career high of number three to become the highest-ranked Belarusian player in history, after reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon and the finals at WTA Tour Championships in November. Azarenka has also begun to distinguish herself off the court as a tennis teen idol with her good looks, fashionista ways and engaging Twitter posts.
