Nadal endorses ProStrips

January 26, 2014

ISPO – MUNICH, GERMANY — Mueller Sports Medicine announces the addition of Rafael Nadal to The Mueller Pro Team. Sure to be one of the biggest breaking news stories at this year’s ISPO International Sport Business Trade Show, the Prairie du Sac Wisconsin-based company made the announcement that they signed a three-year-agreement with the tennis star to endorse Mueller’s ProStrips™ abrasion control products.

Nadal, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, is almost always seen wearing Mueller ProStrips™ around each of his fingers on his left hand. He says that he must wear them to protect his skin from blistering and tearing during a match. Nadal also has been quoted as saying that applying the strips is part of his crucial pre-match ritual.

Pro Strips™ are pressure-sensitive mesh strips available in rolls or pre-cut shapes that help protect against turf burns, scrapes and blisters.

“We are thrilled to have Rafael Nadal join our Pro Team,” Brett Mueller, President of Mueller Sports Medicine, said. “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 Pro Strips™ for years before we reached out to him. We welcome him whole heartedly to the Mueller Sports Medicine team.”

Nadal joins a growing stable of athletes who endorse Mueller products including Alex Morgan, a Forward for the US Women’s National Soccer team and a finalist for FIFA’s world player of the year and Shiv Chanderpaul, former captain of the West Indies Cricket Team, and recently ranked as the number one test batsman in the world.
