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 and Staple’s New Capsule Collection Debuts 3.15.17
FILA and Staple Pigeon have teamed up for the Spring 17 season, this time on an international level. The companies are set to unveil a new capsule collection on March 15, 2017, available at premium international FILA flagship stores and select top tier global retailers. Similar to last year’s collaborative release, the capsule will include a range of apparel and footwear styles. Pieces were designed to combine classic FILA silhouettes with Staple’s signature graphic eye, for a collection that seamlessly merges elements associated with both brands.

The Spring 17 offerings fuse NYC-based Staple’s influence in street and sneaker culture, with FILA’s heritage in fashion and sport. On the apparel side, the collection consists of graphic tees, long sleeve shirts, pique polo shirts, velour sweat suits, shorts, and windbreakers. The hooded tees and scalloped hems combine a penchant for sportswear and street style. Additional design details include color blocking, stripes and camo prints, in keeping with the line’s black, white, gray and pigeon pink color palette. Pieces also feature FILA's co-branded patches, which identify both brands and have been used for decades specifically for pinnacle collaborations and collections. The footwear component of the capsule collection features the F-13 and Original Fitness silhouettes in multiple colorways. Both styles were designed with a full grain leather and suede combo upper. The shoes also feature the two-tone FILA flag, bearing the same combination of materials. In addition, the footwear designs share customized product details such as a dual branded, embroidered tongue patch, sock liner, printed footbed, and branded lace tips.

“FILA represented to me the perfect marriage of luxury with attitude. As I grew up, and Hip-Hop was infused into my DNA; it was fitting to see my lyrical heroes show love to FILA as well. Now, decades later, it is an honor that I’ve come full circle and am now able to collaborate with that same brand and bring the aesthetic I’ve created at Staple Pigeon to the table. FILA x Staple has been a long time coming. Love All.” Jeff Staple, Founder of Staple Pigeon
