The brand was founded by Leardo Gabrielli in the 1950’s but it wasn’t until circa 1980 that it first started to make an impact on the pro tennis circuit following the sponsorship of a young relatively unknown Czech tennis player called Ivan Lendl. Later on top players such as Anders Jarryd, Goran Ivanisevic and Petr Korda courted Australian as it became more widely known.

australian by l’Alpina can sometimes be mistaken for Kangol which uses a similar logo: a kangoroo.
