Mark the fashion designer! There’s finally an explanation for Mark no longer wearing Fila apparels. Mark has been working on his own clothing line called “MP” and will be debuting the first pieces at Wimbledon. The line is co-designed by fellow Australian Bruno Schiavi and is expected to launch in early 2005. The clothing will feature a sun logo and should be rather unique – he was inspired by streetwear and the colors are lime green, burnt orange, blue and red (well at least the future ones, obviously the Wimbledon line will be white). The good news is that Mark told The Sunday Telegraph that he has four more years of tennis ahead of him!
Mark and Fila no more? Eagle-eyed fans noticed that in the recent batch of photos Mark is wearing clothing without the Fila symbol. He is however still wearing the red and white Fila sneakers. A recent check of the ATP website shows that Fila is no longer listed as his sponsor and Mark is absent from the Fila website. No word on what’s up, but it’s likely that Mark might be switching sponsors. A few more Hamburg articles added.
