April 13th, 2014 – HEAD today announces its long term sportswear partnership with Dutch tennis player Robin Haase. The current No. 47 in the ATP’s world rankings will be the first top 50 ATP player to wear the HEAD performance collection, which ensures an elegant and modern look without sacrificing any technical features.
“Every player wants the perfect partner who can deliver the right equipment and support. To me HEAD is that kind of partner and I am very excited about this new chapter in my career,” says 27-year-old Haase, the highest ranked Dutch player on the Tour.
HEAD’s performance men apparel collection offers Haase the ideal combination of function and design and provides perfect support for any challenge a tennis match provides. While bonded tape details create a discrete brand signature and mesh tectonic panels ensure maximum movement, the performance range also combines tailoring elements with a clean and modern design for players who seek sculptured forms and slim looks.
As part of his new sportswear agreement with HEAD, Haase also extended his racquet deal. The Dutch player will continue to recommend the HEAD Graphene Prestige racquet featuring the latest innovation in material development. Extremely lightweight, yet with a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, the innovative Graphene material is integrated into the shaft of the racquet which allows for optimal weight distribution and puts the weight where it is needed most. This combination of precision and power makes the racquet easier to handle on the court while letting the player swing with more force at the same time.
