As you know, our Jimmie48 is in Brisbane. Today he photographed the world No.37’s practice session and noticed that the Brit is no longer clad in Asics, rather, her black training gear boasts the logo of Ellesse.
Konta used to be among Asics’ leading representatives. When it comes to Ellesse, Konta will boost their presence in the tennis world (the brand’s sole WTA representative used to be world No.53 Monica Puig, who is now with Yonex). Moreover, I hope that the Ellesse clothes will now be more widely available, because so far they could only be bought on the Japanese market.
Konta’s 2019 Brisbane International campaign starts with Sloane Stephens as first-round obstacle.
