On Tuesday, May 24th, 2011 Oakley hosted over thirty media ranging from local and regional outlets to GQ and Men’s Health to launch the latest performance eyewear – “Fast Jacket”. Reigning French Open women’s finalist, Sam Stosur, men’s number 32 in the world Janko Tipsarevic, the winningest doubles team in men’s history the Bryan Brothers and several other Oakley players helped host the media at the Tennis Club Boulogne Billancourt.
In typical Janko Tipsarevic style, the young Serbian took a few games to wake up and realize he was playing in the first round of a major. But once he did it was on with a furious backhand, solid net play and close to a dozen aces to storm past Argentina’s Brian Dabul in straight sets.
Fast Jacket: Janko Tipsarevic Lays Down Solid Showing at Sony Ericsson Open, Reaches Last 16 in New Eyewear
It’s safe to say that Janko Tipsarevic is pumped on his new eyewear. Oakley’s Global Tennis Star took to the court at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami these past couple weeks, clawing his way into the “Last 16” with solid wins over Robin Haase (6-4, 7-6), Marin Cilic (6-3, 7-6) and Philipp Petzschner (6-3, 6-3) before falling in the fourth round to formidable Frenchman Gilles Simon. His impressive showing was highlighted even more with the fact that he’s one of Oakley’s lucky few elite athletes that are putting O’s brand new performance eyewear, the Fast Jacket™, into full action during major competition.
