Sergio Tacchini was an Italian Davis Cup champion from 1959 to 1966, the year he set up a company to produce and distribute sports apparel and footwear. He started out by providing clothing for his former team mates and put colour onto tennis track suits and strips for the first time. In the seventies the first coloured tennis-wear collection made its appearance at Wimbledon when an unforgettable Jimmy Connors won the Wimbledon tournament.
In 1978 John McEnroe signs a 8-Year deal/contract with this stylish clothing brand: Sergio Tacchini. By the 80's the sponsership permits the brand to gain a placing on the international market. Llie Nastase, Vita gerulaitid, Mat Wilander, Pat Cash, Pete Sampras and Gabriela Sabatini are just some of the testimonials who have contributed to taking the Sergio Tacchini Clothing brand to the top of the tennis world.
