It honestly isn?t often you are asked to dinner with a genuine sporting legend, I mean a winner .
of 94 tennis tournaments, eight Grand Slam titles and four times ITF world champion, he dominated ATP rankings in the second half of the 80s. At the end of his career he was the player who had been ranked number one the longest, 270 weeks. He was voted second in In the all time top list of players, only bettered by Jimmy Conners and then guided our own Andy Murray to two Wimbledon wins ! Yes Mr Ivan Lendl, of course I?ll come to dinner with you.
The occasion was the launch of his new tennis shoe collaboration with Italian footwear brand Superga to celebrate the reissuing of the shoe he wore to win countless matches during his career.
The Sport Lendl shoe along with their renowned perforated ?swallow?s tail? logo was designed in 1970 for the brand?s sports line, the new Superga Sport Lendl which features all the original characteristics: eco-leather upper, printed rubber sole, Superga Sport logo on the tongue, and the champion?s signature on the back. The shoes comes in four separate colours and launches just in time for the start of Wimbledon.
