Italian star Matteo Berrettini will wear the ASICS Gel-Resolution 8 tennis shoe after signing long term partnership with the Japanese brand
World ranked no.7 Matteo Berrettini has committed to wearing ASICS tennis shoes and will become an ASICS ambassador. The young Italian had a stand out season in 2021 including reaching the final of Wimbledon.
“I’m excited to be partnering with a brand like ASICS with over 70 years of high-performance brand heritage, and such a deep, and shared belief in the importance of supporting athletes. I feel very confident knowing I’ll take the court wearing ASICS footwear in 2022 and the years to come,” commented Matteo Berrettini.
The Gel-Resolution 8 shoe he will be wearing are designed for baseline players that need stability and support which will suit the big hitting Italian’s game. Launched in 2020 the shoe received high praise during a Tennishead testing day which formed part of a full review of the ASICS Gel-Resolution 8.
Berrettini pointed out that ASICS are the only brand that design shoes specifically to suit different styles of play. “For me, I need a lot of stability and support as an aggressive baseline player. I tested the GEL-RESOLUTION™️ 8, and straight away felt I had found the ideal footwear to help me get to the next level.”
The Chairman of ASICS, Motoi Ayama has said, “ASICS is thrilled to announce the addition of Matteo Berrettini to our tennis family. Matteo brings good will, a successful and growing career and a positive mindset to the partnership. His energy and drive to improve will be a welcome addition to our entire organisation. Right away we hope to get him involved in product development, applying his unique experiences to our innovation and engineering teams in Japan.”
