Fans react to ON signing Iga Swiatek
Let us take a look at some of the reactions from fans on social media.
“I’m shocked she split from Asics so quickly. She did have quite a mixed bag with their kits but with being the first player to wear On clothing is definitely a huge deal”, wrote a fan.
“I hope they open up a tennis line of clothes”, commented another fan.
“Kits never looked good on her or any of their athletes imo. She was worried number one and set records and still not given a special kit? ASICS fumbled the bag”, read a comment.
“On should sponsor Ons. Such a missed opportunity”, joked another fan.
Another fan wrote: “Good. I couldn’t with her ugly asics outfits any longer.”
