Highest ranked Japanese tennis player teams up with Uniqlo

Jan '11
Global sports and media company, IMG Worldwide announced that top Japanese male tennis player Kei Nishikori has signed a five-year sponsorship agreement with Japan's leading apparel retailer UNIQLO Co. Ltd. Under the agreement, Nishikori will be suiting up in UNIQLO wear for the first time as he takes the court at the Aircel Chennai Open, running from January 3 to 9 in India.

Nishikori, currently one of the youngest players ranked in the top 100 of the ATP World Rankings, has his sights firmly set on becoming the highest ranked Japanese tennis player in history. However, he has even loftier goals for the future as he seeks to become the top-ranked male tennis player in the world. Similarly, UNIQLO is one of the world's leading and fastest-growing apparel retailers and -- like Nishikori -- committed to being the best in its field.

Nishikori is the highest profile athlete to be endorsed by UNIQLO. The company is thrilled to be teaming up with one of the most exciting young players in tennis today and eager to reflect its commitment to quality and customer satisfaction by supplying wear that will help Nishikori reach new heights.

UNIQLO will announce more details about the new agreement during a press conference to be held in Tokyo, Japan after Nishikori competes in the Australian Open starting January 11, 2011. More information on the press conference will follow.
