Mueller Sports Medicine has signed a three-year agreement with tennis star Rafael Nadal to endorse Mueller ProStrips™ abrasion control products. Nadal, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, almost always wears Mueller ProStrips™ around all of the fingers on his left hand to protect his skin from tearing and blistering during a match. Nadal has also said applying the strips is part of his crucial pre-match ritual and he used them during the 2014 Australian Open to combat blisters.
"We are thrilled to have Rafael Nadal join our Pro Team," said Brett Mueller, President of Mueller Sports Medicine. "To have one of the greatest players of all time use our product without an endorsement is the real story here. 'Rafa' has been wearing Mueller ProStrips™ for years before we reached out to him. We welcome him wholeheartedly to the Mueller Sports Medicine team."
Nadal joins a growing stable of athletes who endorse Mueller products. They include Alex Morgan, a forward for the U.S. Women's National Soccer team and a finalist for FIFA's world player of the year, and Shiv Chanderpaul, the former captain of the West Indies Cricket Team, who was recently ranked as the No. 1 test batsman in the world.
