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 Launches Women’s “Sleek Streak” and Men’s “Zephyr” Tennis Collections
(FILA Global) – A selection of FILA sponsored tennis athletes will wear the new Sleek Streak and Zephyr collections at the Australian Open. Each line takes a bold approach to on-court styling, complete with vibrant hues, eye-catching graphic prints, and standout finishes.

Women’s Sleek Streak Collection:
Designed for the urban-chic player, the Sleek Streak collection strikes a balance of spicy 70’s style and futuristic finishes. Details like a noveaux tie-dye print, color blocking, and glimmer-sheen finishes come together to create a mix of statement pieces and everyday staples. FILA sponsored athletes including Yaroslava Shvedova, Irina Begu and Timea Babos will hit the court in the Sleek Streak collection in Melbourne.

The Sleek Streak line is designed in a black/white/ruby rose colorway, featuring show-stopping catwalk cutlines. The collection consists of five different silhouettes of tops, including a racerback tank, halter tank, full coverage tank, short sleeve top, and long sleeve top. Items feature contrast blocks of color, a sleek multi print, and the silver cut-out F-Box logo. The Sleek Streak range offers three skort styles to tie back to the tops, detailed with slits, pleats, and pops of the multi print. The skorts, offered in 13 ½ and 14 ½ center back length, each include COOLMAX® CORE technology in the crotch lining, as well as the silver cut-out F-Box logo.

The collection also boasts two dress styles: the Sleek Dress and Sleek Printed Dress. The Sleek Dress includes a pleated panel on the bottom half, open hole back, 31 ½” back body length, and the silver cut out F-Box logo. The Sleek Printed dress is boldly designed with a multi print, 31 ½” back body length, and the silver cut out F-Box logo. The Sleek Jacket and Sleek Pant, in black and ruby rose hues, round out the collection.

The Sleek Streak line retails from $52 to $90 and will be available on FILA.com​​ and at tennis specialty retailers in the United States and Canada.

Men’s Zephyr Collection:
The best of FILA’s 1980’s street fashion meets high-performance function in the breakthrough Zephyr collection. Bold players will be drawn to its bright pop-art inspired schemes complete with brush stroke patterns, oversized logos, and inner contrast taping. Pinhole mesh and moisture-wicking technology works to keep you ventilated and cool, while stretch fabric and ergonomic cutlines maximize the way you move. The collection’s 80’s blue/black/white/zephyr orange hues will make a memorable on-court impression. FILA athletes such as Janko TIpsarevic will wear the Zephyr collection on-court in Melbourne.

The Zephyr collection’s four tops include two crewneck styles and two polo shirts. Pieces are embellished with pops of contrasting color or printed panels and piping. The shirts pair back to the Zephyr short, offered in black or white, each with printed inserts. The Zephyr Quarter Zip Top is a standout style thanks to its vibrant 80’s blue/black/blazing yellow colorway. To complete the collection is the Zephyr pant, in black with 80’s blue and blazing yellow accents.
