AdidasTennis has shared the advertisement on its Instagram page with a tagline saying, “The team is ready to unite. Introducing the new Adidas Tennis Collection.”

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Maria Sakkari will take the gains from Roland-Garros into Wimbledon Championships 2021

Tsitsipas and his compatriot Sakkari will go into Wimbledon Championships 2021 on the back of strong runs at Roland-Garros.

Sakkari reached the last four of a Grand Slam for the very first time, taking down the likes of 2020 runner-up Sofia Kenin and defending champion Iga Swiatek.

It was a campaign that held the promise of the ultimate prize but was cut short in a fiercely fought semi-final against Czech star Barbora Krejcikova, the eventual champion.

Tsitsipas came mighty close to capping off an incredible clay court season with his maiden Grand Slam title.

Taking the gains from his first ever Masters 1000 title at Monte-Carlo, a runner-up finish at Barcelona and a championship win at Lyon into Roland-Garros, the Greek got past the likes of the big-serving John Isner, Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev to reach the finale.

However, from going two sets to the good against Novak Djokovic in the championship clash, Tsitsipas lost his way to eventually see his title hopes melt away at the end of five sets.

Dominic Thiem and Garbine Muguruza are also counting on strong runs at Wimbledon

Thiem has had a wretched run since his maiden Grand Slam title at last year’s US Open.
