ASICS is proud to announce the signing of Matteo Berrettini. Finishing the 2021 season with a career high ranking of #7 in the ATP, Berrettini strengthens the ASICS tennis ambassador portfolio to kick-off the 2022 season.
“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.
Berrettini has chosen to wear the GEL-RESOLUTION™ 8, designed for support and stability especially in side-to-side movement.
The GEL-RESOLUTION™ 8 was developed at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science in Kobe Japan. Launched in 2020, the tennis shoe quickly became a favorite amongst elite and amateur players for its ability to support and protect the foot while also remaining flexible enough to move to the net with ease.
“ASICS is the only brand I know that designs it’s tennis shoes based on playing style. 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. I’m looking forward to the season ahead,” continued Berrettini.
“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. We’re proud to support Matteo during his journey on and off the court, and look forward to a successful and positive cooperation- ASICS Chairman and CEO Motoi Oyama.
