Federer welcomed Iga Swiatek, Ben Shelton to On
10 days ago, Swiss apparel brand On Running – in which Federer has been investing since 2019 – announced that they signed Swiatek and Shelton to an endorsement deal.
Federer released a statement, saying On is proud to welcome “two future champions of the sport” to the brand. “Iga and Ben represent the next generation of world-class talent. Both players demonstrate On’s competitive spirit and embody current and future champions of the sport.
We are pleased to welcome them to the On family,” Federer said in a statement. Swiatek, who is ranked at No 1 in the women’s game, admitted that Federer being involved with On played a part in her decision to sign with the Swiss apparel brand.
“I think just the fact that Roger is involved in that kind of company is just a good recommendation for tennis players. I think also he influenced a lot on [the company’s] side, so that’s why they want to go further and they want to sign players.
I’m pretty happy that we could make it happen because I feel like we share the same values. They have a personal approach for the players. I feel like it’s treating me first like a person, but not mainly as a machine to win, you know? It’s a nice feeling to have that kind of support. I’m really happy that I’m starting this new chapter,” Swiatek said.
