Au Revoir: Gaël Monfils ends decade long partnerships with Wilson and ASICS
The world No. 21 is excited to start a new chapter with Artengo.
Published Jan 03, 2022
It's been one heck of a ride for Gaël Monfils and his decade-long partnerships with Wilson and ASICS. The Frenchman has claimed six titles and won 296 tour-level matches since signing with the racquet company. In 2022, Monfils will be taking the court with Artengo from head-to-toe, including his racquets.
"It's a new adventure, a new page, a new chapter working with Artengo. For me, it's more than a partnership. It's really living it 100%, that's what is most important," Monfils says in Artengo's latest post on Instagram.
What is Artengo? It's an in-house tennis brand for Decathlon, one of the largest sports retailers. There are well over 1500 stores in the world in 60 countries total and now they are looking to make some major noise in the tennis realm.
Last year when the brand approached Monfils, he was skeptical as to why no one was playing with the racquets, but agreed to testing a few out over summer. After a couple of technical and cosmetic tweaks and approval from his coach Gunter Bresnik, Le Monf was all in according to Le Parisien.
"It's cool to work with a 100% French brand, he says. I find it cool, when I am nearing the end of my career, to bring my thoughts and coolify the brand," Monfils told Le Parisien.
The world No. 21's deal with Artengo is for five years and he could start 2022 with the "TR960 Control Tour" frame. Monfils is the No. 1 seed in Adelaide and received a bye into the second round where he awaits the winner of Alex Bolt vs. Juan Manuel Cerundolo.
