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 Partners With Shoe City for the Second Edition of the “Puzzle Piece”
Last year, FILA and Shoe City partnered together for the first edition of the “Puzzle Piece.” The style selected for the collaboration shoe was The Cage, a retro streetball silhouette. The pair was draped with a lush “Light It Up Blue” tonal suede upper and a multi-colored puzzle piece lining, along with an embroidered puzzle piece logo on the tongue. A portion of every purchase was donated to Autism Speaks to help raise awareness, fund research and change the future for those who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. According to the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one in every 88 children are diagnosed with Autism in the United States.

Almost one year to date, FILA and Shoe City return for the second edition in the “Puzzle Piece” series. In 2017, the FILA F-13 silhouette is selected. Dressed in a mostly white tumbled leather upper, the classic F-13 features the FILA-flag in the “Light It Up Blue” color, as well as suede overlays along the eye-row, and strap. Much like the first edition of the series, the sock liner, back tongue and footbed are dressed in a multi-colored puzzle piece print to tie back to the Autism Awareness official symbol and messaging. Additionally, that same print is displayed on the shoe laces.

The collaboration shoe drops this Thursday, April 20th, on YCMC.com and in select Shoe City doors. For every purchase made, Shoe City will donate $10 to Autism Speaks.

Pricing: Mens: $79.99 Grade School: $64.99 Pre-School: $59.99
