YOUNG tennis sensation Alex Eala will now be able to wear the Globe logo in her tournament outfits.

The 16-year-old Eala, a two-time Grand Slam winner and Rafael Nadal Academy scholar, said it’s a big deal for her to finally put the Globe logo on her outfit.

“For Globe to have my back since I was eight years old really means a lot to me. I’m always hearing good things from my friends about all they have done during the pandemic,” Eala said.

“It’s really amazing how they were able to step up to make people’s lives a bit easier and happier, including mine,” she said. “I am a very proud ambassador of Globe.”

The development is a testament to the long relationship between Globe and the current French Open and Australian Open girls’ doubles champion.

Eala recalled the time when her mom used to stitch Globe logos on her uniform when she was competing in 10-and-under tournaments.

“I’ve been waiting for so long for this to happen, to be able to give back something to Globe is really a big deal for me,” Eala said. “This will continue to inspire me to play better and do well in my games.”

Globe has been supporting Eala since she started competing in several age-group tournaments not only against older opponents but also against boys.

She became a Globe Ambassador at the age of eight.

“From the very start we always knew that Alex would become a world-class tennis player because of her determination, dedication and discipline even at a young age,” Globe President and CEO said. “Her sheer will power to overcome adversities, being away from her family and having to train everyday to further improve her game are just few of the qualities that set her apart from her peers.”

The support Globe provided helped Eala to become one of the biggest names in the International Tennis Federation juniors. She is currently No. 3 in the juniors world ranking with a career best No. 2 spot she achieved October last year.

Eala is now ranked 662nd in the Women’s Tennis Association Tour from a career best 624th last June 3.

Early last year, Eala won the Australian Open girls’ double event with Indonesian partner Priska Nugroho before adding her second Grand Slam title with a championship run in the recent French Open with Russian Oksana Selekhmeteva.

Eala is now turning her sights on competing for the first time in Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam event of the year.
