Through this endorsement, Telenet is investing in a young and dynamic athlete who receives incredible support across her native Flemish Belgium. In similar fashion, Telenet is a young ambitious company providing its customers with the best products and service.

“It is a great sign of support to see a top company like Telenet start this relationship with me at this stage of my career. It gives me extra motivation and confidence so close to my departure to Australia” states Yanina Wickmayer.

“We strongly believe in Yanina. She has an abundance of talent, won’t let setbacks stand in her way, and continues to strive to be the best. As a young woman and role model, she is an individual that not only loves our products but also fits perfectly in the world of facebook, mobile phone service, and mobile internet. It speaks for itself that we will follow Yanina through our TV platforms and we will stay connected with Yanina through our mobile services. We wish her nothing but the best in Australia and for the rest of the season” adds Saskia Schatteman, Executive Vice President Residential Marketing at Telenet.
