Fila Honors 100 Year Anniversary with Commemorative Australian Open Collection

In honor of the Fila brand’s 100th anniversary in 2011, the company announced that reigning US Open Singles champion Kim Clijsters will debut the first in a series of 100th anniversary commemorative collections of performance tennis apparel at the 2011 Australian Open.
This new collection, named for another Fila champion, four time Australian Open champion Evonne Goolagong-Cawley, sought inspiration from the brand’s archives of styles worn by Evonne during her 14 Grand Slam title reign in the 1970s and early 80s.

“We are thrilled that Evonne will serve as a brand ambassador for Fila as we honor her tennis legacy during our 100th anniversary year,” said Gene Yoon, Chairman of Fila.
“It was only fitting that Kim Clijsters wear this collection since she is the only woman after Goolagong-Cawley to win a Grand Slam as a mother. Kim and Evonne are inspirations to mothers and tennis fans around the world with their grace, athleticism and drive…”
