I’m big on comfort but also quality.
I partnered with Castore a few years ago and together we created AMC, a premium tennis line. I work with the designers on every piece, with technical performance at the heart of the process. We are expanding it to cover lifestyle clothing as well, which is exciting.
It has to perform under the toughest conditions…
… so I always enjoy testing and feeding back on the latest fabrics. I really like the retro kits from the '80s, so we try to build some of that colour and design into the ranges where we can, but its good fun being part of the process.
Given the job, I spend a lot of time in tennis and training kit..
… so would probably describe my style as relaxed / casual. I do like fitted clothing though, and it’s something that is reflected across the AMC business. I don’t mind the occasional tailored suit though.
There is so much history connected to Wimbledon…
… and the atmosphere is special, especially Centre Court. I love playing in front of a British crowd. I’ve had many amazing moments over the years, with more to come. It also means I can stay at home with my family, which makes a nice change from hotels on the road.
