For 110 years, FILA has stood for distinctive design with Italian roots. From its humble textile beginnings in Biella, Italy in 1911 to the historic introduction of color on the tennis court in 1973, FILA prides itself on designs that are as unique as those who wear them. For over half a century, FILA has accompanied exceptional and successful athletes - those who boldly challenge boundaries and defy expectations. With a philosophy committed to innovation and quality, FILA ceaselessly makes a statement with styles that are original in aesthetics yet effective in function.
Professional athletes around the world also appreciate this special mix. Especially in the field of tennis, FILA can thus look back on a successful history. World-famous champions like Björn Borg and Monica Seles were equipped with the brand early on. But also today successful tennis professionals wear the collections of the unmistakable traditional brand. Therefore, also this year athletes will fight for the tournament victory in the current FILA collection. With Ash Barty, Sofia Kenin, Karolina Pliskova and Kiki Bertens four current WTA TOP10 world ranked players will participate in the tournament. Laura Siegemund, the winner of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in 2017, is also a member of their team.
