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.
2010 French Open Women’s Singles Finalist, Sam Stosur returned to centre court once again to kick-off the tournament as match number one of the second grand slam in 2011. Under near perfect conditions Stosur entered Philippe Chatrier on a mission and accomplished it in just over an hour, by spanking Iveta Benesova 6-2, 6-3.
