Recently retired number one tennis star Ash Barty, Karolina Pliskova, or Diego Schwartzman. They all wear the same footwear and apparel on the courts. Fila is originally an Italian company founded by Ettore and Giansevero Fila in 1911 in Piedmont. In 2003 the ownership of the company went from Italian entrepreneurs to an American hedge fund and later the company was bought off by Fila Korea. At the moment, the company has headquarters in Seoul, but the quality of its tennis shoes and clothes remains undisputed.
