Philipp Plein welcomes Sofya Zhuk to the #PleinFamily

PHILIPP PLEIN announces reigning Junior Wimbledon champion Sofya Zhuk as the latest brand ambassador of his eponymous luxury fashion brand.

The US-based, 16-year-old Russian is quickly making a name for herself on the international junior tennis circuit following a string of notable International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournaments. Building on her Junior Wimbledon win in 2015, Zhuk took another ITF Futures title last month, securing her position among the elite of IMG Junior Players. IMG experts working with top players such as Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Eugenie Bouchard have a keen eye on Zhuk’s bright future.

Sofya Zhuk joins Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, Formula One racer Nico Hülkenberg and Germany’s Next Top Model winner Lena Gercke as the latest face to be signed by PHILIPP PLEIN.

Feliciano Robayna, Director of Sports Marketing at PHILIPP PLEIN commented, “I am excited to welcome Sofya to the family. She is talented, bold and has a great attitude - a force to be reckoned with. She is a perfect fit for the brand.”

Zhuk made her Women's Tennis Association (WTA) debut last week with a wildcard entry to the Miami Open.
