SERGIO TACCHINI - SPORT MEETS ITALIAN FASHION DESIGN
In 1959, Sergio Tacchini made his first appearance for the Italian select team in the Davis Cup. In 1960, he became Italian champion after defeating Nicola Pietrangoli in the final. With Pietrangoli as his partner, he won two more Italian doubles titles. By the end of his active career in tennis, he had played in a total of seven Davis Cup finals. His real rise to icon status, however, only began afterwards. Even before his retirement as a professional player, he founded a fashion company. He originally called it Sandys, but soon the sports and designer fashion was sold under the illustrious name of the company boss. In the 1970s, the Sergio Tacchini brand managed to bring a little of the glitz and glamour of Italian fashion style to the hitherto rather monochrome white tennis world. Especially the courage to introduce fresh colours has to be credited to the brand. A lot of big tennis personalities and number one world-ranked players had sponsorship contracts, among them Martina Hingis, Gabriela Sabatini, John McEnroe, Pete Sampras and Novak Djokovic.
