Nike

American clothing and sportswear giant Nike did a serious culling of the herd at the end of the 2019 season, and the players affected were mostly from the women’s game.

As a child, ?wi?tek watched Roger Federer lift major trophies, and his Rolex watches remained engraved in her memory as an integral part of those historic moments.

“I am thrilled to join the Rolex family. This partnership is really inspiring for me and makes me realise how far my journey went – from being a kid and watching on TV how Roger holds the trophy with his timepiece on a wrist to having my own (timepiece, not the trophy[yet?]),” wrote ?wi?tek when she was unveiled as a Rolex ambassador.

Red Bull

?wi?tek was the first female ambassador from the tennis roster of Austrian energy drink maker and distributor Red Bull.

Japanese automaker Toyota’s luxury division Lexus’ association with ?wi?tek goes back to 2018, when she was still playing at the junior level.

?wi?tek’s success in the 2018 French Open girls’ doubles category and her subsequent Wimbledon girls’ singles title attracted attention from many a corporate giant, including Lexus, which tied her down to a deal following her rise.
