UNIQLO today congratulates its Global Brand Ambassadors, Serbia-born tennis pro Novak Djokovic and Japanese wheelchair tennis player Shingo Kunieda on their 6 July victories at Wimbledon, one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments. This is Djokovic's second Wimbledon victory and seventh Grand Slam win, and allows him to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings. Kunieda's third Wimbledon victory in the men's doubles marks another Grand Slam title this year after winning the men's singles and doubles at the Australian Open and men's singles at the French Open. UNIQLO is proud to support these top athletes with quality match wear jointly developed with their assistance.

Novak Djokovic said, "I very much appreciate all the support I have received from UNIQLO. This is the second Grand Slam title since we have teamed up and I look forward to many more in the future. I thank everyone connected with UNIQLO and will do my best in the upcoming U.S. Open."

Shingo Kunieda commented, "I am extremely happy to have achieved successive wins at Wimbledon. It is especially encouraging as this is the first Grand Slam title after UNIQLO has become the title sponsor of ITF's wheelchair tennis tour. UNIQLO's wear is lightweight and easy to move in, allowing me to play my best. I will work hard to win at the upcoming U.S. Open as well."

Tadashi Yanai, Fast Retailing President & CEO, said, "On behalf of the Fast Retailing Group and UNIQLO, I offer sincere congratulations to both our Global Brand Ambassadors on their victories. We will continue to develop high-quality wear, and as a company, wish for the continued success of Novak Djokovic and Shingo Kunieda, as well as our fellow brand ambassador Kei Nishikori."
