So I am writing my blog super early today because I have a spare moment and the rest of the day is going to be bananas!!!!
One of the most frequent questions that I get is how do you get a job with Wilson….. it’s a great question and I think the most simple answer is that you have to have a passion for sport.
Now, how do you get on the Tour Team? Well, that is maybe a bit different. What you may or may not know is that the team: Renaud, Jacob, Mario and Clement all played at an extremely high level of tennis. Everyone is very humble about their tennis background, well except for me- I don’t do humble (ha!), but the team understands what it takes to play at a high level and what the expectations are to TRY to make it in pro tennis.
That is a huge part of scouting and having a feel for who should be our Next Gen player, who we want to join the Wilson team, etc….Now this is going to sound cocky (sorry) but the boys are definitely the best in the industry. Renaud was a really good junior, Jacob played at TCU, Mario Vergara played at U of West Florida and our newest member, aka the Rookie… Clement Morel, he actually won the Australian Open Boys Singles title in 2002!!!!
Now the best part of this was not that he won, it was pulling up the picture a few days ago!!! hahaha
Come to find out, the year he won, who was the girls champ? Wilson Exclusive athlete Barbora Zahlavova Strycova!!!
And now the big question…. who aged better?! We want to know what you think!!! hahaha
Anyway, Barbora is still out there playing bigtime and Clement gets to be involved in the sport he loves… guess the point I was making is that there are so many different ways to be involved in the sport and all it takes is committed passion.
We may not have all reached our ‘potential’ but we all love it and working our a** off for it!! haha
Speaking of that… off to our apparel shoot with Feliciano Lopez… after that, we shoot video with Milos Raonic.
