Written by on January 10, 2011 in Team USANA, USANA with 7 Comments

 

The Australian Open, one of tennis’ four Grand Slam tournaments, is just around the corner and with it the world’s top tennis players are gearing up for what’s sure to be an incredible 2011. As the new season gets under way, we at USANA are excited to announce that our partnership with the WTA — the premier name in women’s sports — is growing.

Since 2006, USANA has been proud to be the official health supplement supplier to the WTA. But we’re thrilled to announce that beginning this year and continuing through 2013, USANA Health Sciences is now not only the official health supplement supplier, but also an official partner, and USANA’s Essentials are the official multivitamin of the WTA.

“I’ve been using USANA products since they began sponsoring the WTA, but had known of their great reputation as a high-quality supplements company,” says Liezel Huber, one of the world’s top doubles players. “The USANA Essentials and BiOmega are an important part of my health regimen, and I don’t go a day without them.”

Throughout the coming months, What’s Up, USANA? readers will be seeing and hearing from many of the top women’s tennis players, each of whom will share with us her experiences regarding our high-quality nutritional supplements.

More than 5 million people attend WTA events throughout the year, and millions more watch on television. It’s exciting to know that the best women’s tennis players in the world believe so strongly in the world’s top-rated nutritional supplements. It’s truly a perfect match.

“I train for hours everyday and the USANA supplements I take help replenish and nourish me,” says Samantha Stosur, who enters the 2011 season as the No. 6-ranked singles player in the world. “I trust USANA to maintain my health and wellness and support my goals.”

As all tennis fans’ eyes focus on Australia over the next few weeks, USANA’s own Alan Bergstrom, vice president of customer service, as well as our colleagues in Australia-New Zealand, will offer updates on all the WTA happenings.

    I think because of this partnership, there won't be any more issues concerning performance enhancing drugs for athletes in tennis.
