Martina Hingis Tonic clothing line signs with La Costa
Clothing company Tonic Active Wear’s division, “by Martina Hingis,” has been named Official Clothing Partner of the Southern California Open, held at La Costa, tournament organizers announced.
Hingis, who is scheduled to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame later this year, made history as the youngest Grand Slam Champion of this era and the youngest top ranked player in the game. Having moved on from competition on the Pro Tour, the retired player is busy exploring new ventures, such as coaching, playing World Team Tennis and now, collaborating with Tonic to create her own signature tennis collection.
“We are extremely proud to have Tonic by Martina Hingis as the official clothing partner of the Southern California Open,” said Tournament Director Alastair Garland.
Since 2004, Tonic Lifestyle Apparel has been designed and manufactured in Vancouver, Canada.
“Tonic is delighted with the opportunity to sponsor this top tennis event. Martina loved to play at the La Costa Resort and Spa when she was on tour, so we’re excited to be involved in this tournament as our first major sponsorship,” said Leopoldo Gutierrez, CEO Tonic Active Wear.
In collaboration with 15-time Grand Slam Champion Martina Hingis, this collection was created for the high intensity movements of tennis.
The Southern California Open, a WTA Premier 700 tennis event and a major stop on the Emirates Airline US Open Series summer calendar, will once again be hosted at the l La Costa Resort and Spa on July 27-August 4.
