Following the completion of his Nike deal, Paul joined hands with another American company in New Balance on a multi-year deal. One of the world’s largest sports footwear and apparel manufacturers, New Balance signed Paul in March 2021.
The Japanese sports equipment manufacturer has been making quick in-roads into the tennis market by signing numerous youngsters of the future.

The 25-year-old American signed a sponsorship with Motorola at the start of the 2023 Australian Open in January. Motorola is an American multinational telecommunications company that manufactures cell phones and other electronics.
The German multinational corporation was Paul’s first apparel and footwear sponsor when he started as a teenager. Adidas had tied up the promising American on a multi-year deal that came to an end after his junior French Open triumph in May 2015.
Nike was next in line to sign Paul. As per reports, the two had agreed on a five-and-a-half-long contract that ran from July 2015 to March 2021. Although there were rumours that Paul might extend his deal with Nike, he later walked away from the idea.
Paul and Wilson’s association dates back to the very beginning of his junior career. The American-Austrian sports equipment manufacturer had a decade-long journey with the American, but the two parted ways as 2022 came to a close. Paul used to play with the Wilson Blade racquet.
