Sam Stosur will literally be showing off her new status as U.S. Open champion when she starts her 2012 season in Brisbane. The Aussie star announced on her website that she has signed a new multi-year deal with ASICS.
Stosur, who has worn ASICS shoes for several years, will now be “fully kitted” as she said on her site while also helping to develop new products as well as serve as a global brand ambassador for the company.
The endorsement deal is the latest for the 27-year old Queensland native after she defeated Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final last September to claim her first Major title. Fans will be able to see Stosur in her new look as she takes on Anastasiya Yakimova in the first round of the Brisbane International later today.
