Isner Wins for the Fifth Time at Atlanta, Zeballos Stays Hot in Doubles
FILA sponsored tennis player John Isner continued his impressive 2018 campaign Sunday, defeating Ryan Harrison 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 to capture the BB&T Atlanta Open title. The win marks Isner’s fifth win in his last six attempts in Atlanta, and is his second consecutive win in the final over Harrison.

Isner used a dominant forehand all week to overcome the likes of Alex de Minaur, Mischa Zverev and Matthew Ebden en route to the final. “It’s incredible, and I think I said it last year, I feel like there may come a time where I’m not back in the finals, or I’m not the champion again, but as it stands right now, I’m very happy to be the champ here,” said Isner of his remarkable history at the BB&T Atlanta Open.

Isner is in the midst of his career best season on the ATP World Tour, having secured his first Masters 1000 title earlier in the year at the Miami Open. Isner also made his career first Grand Slam semifinal, two weeks ago at Wimbledon.

FILA sponsored tennis player Horacio Zeballos and partner Julio Peralta continued their dominance on the ATP World Tour doubles ladder Sunday, defeating Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic 6-1, 4-6, 10-1 at the German Open Tennis Championships, presented by Kampmann.

The win in Hamburg is Zeballo’s second in as many weeks (Båstad), and third overall in 2018. “It is amazing," said Zeballos. "I have been watching this tournament since I was a kid. It is a very important tournament and it is such an honor to win this. We are really, really happy."

Zeballos has now accumulated 10 career tour-level doubles championships, six of which have come with Peralta. Zeballos is currently ranked No. 31 in the men’s doubles ladder.

(FILA North America) - FILA teamed up with 2013 Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli earlier this year, to launch the LOVE FILA BY MARION BARTOLI collection. In time for the season’s final Grand Slam in New York City, the collaboration continues with an updated range of luxe tennis fashions, exclusive to Neiman Marcus. The new LOVE FILA BY MARION BARTOLI “Court Central Collection” takes sartorial cues from the Big Apple, with a set of styles that shine as bright as the city lights.


“We are thrilled to partner with a retailer like Neiman Marcus,” said Danny Lieberman, Senior Vice President of Apparel at FILA North America. “Together with Marion, we’ve designed something special for their clientele, with a collection that radiates boldness and fun, while still delivering on performance.


Lieberman continued, “The “Court Central Collection” serves as a love letter to New York, one of Bartoli’s favorite cities, with an aesthetic that echoes its excitement and energy. The apparel fuses high-fashion with sports fashion, for winning designs that will score style points both on and off-the-court.”


Highlighted by red, white and blue hues, the line includes classic silhouettes as well as standout styles. Bartoli’s signature tennis ball emoji design is accompanied by decorative elements associated with the city. The “Court Central” dress and bomber jacket are the collection’s statement pieces, each embellished with pops of colorful, New York centric details like the skyline, a NYC taxi cab, and notable street signs.


“The LOVE FILA collection offers a range styles for our customers who enjoy blending performance and fashion,” says Neiman Marcus Senior Vice President, GMM, Lisa Kazor. “The eight #OnlyatNM styles playfully incorporate New York City's most iconic elements--a slight wink to our future home.”
