“I’m excited to partner with both brands and make use of the Focal headphones & Naim wireless speaker as I continue my training and compete in this year’s Australian Open,” the 25-year-old said.
On his part, George Poutakidis, CEO, BusiSoft AV and Addicted to Audio, said “Focal Powered by Naim, incorporating Addicted to Audio, is extremely proud to be working with Maria. Maria is humble, gifted and works extremely hard to achieve her best.”
“She is a role model for young players and the very definition of what our company values; hard work, loyalty, community and passion. We look forward to a long-term partnership,” he added.
The World No. 22 is a fan favourite heading into the 2021 Australian Open.
Today, she takes on French opponent Kristina Mladenovic in her first match.
“When I am next in Melbourne I look forward to visiting the Focal Powered by Naim flagship store, incorporating Addicted to Audio, which launches in April 2021,” Sakkari added.
