The start of the year 2022 is marked by a new promising collaboration, since Team Artengo now has a new member in its ranks. Currently 21st player in the world and 1st in France in the ATP World Tour rankings, Gaël Monfils has indeed chosen Artengo as a new equipment supplier (shoes, racquets and textiles) for the next 5 years.

Proud of this new turn, Artengo intends to write a great story with this renowned player, who has already conquered the hearts of the French and imposed his performance on courts around the world. With this new collaboration, Artengo is getting closer to the highest level by forging a long-term relationship of trust with those who promote the brand and the tennis around the world.

"If there is no daring, there are no athletes."


Like Decathlon, Artengo is attached to strong values ​​and never ceases to promote them, whether in the design of its products or in the actions carried out on and outside the court. The Artengo team has been aiming for several years to become one of the leading players in tennis, and it is with Oliver Marach (Men’s double winner of the Australian Open 2018), many technical partners such as Steve Darcis, or even rising stars and future champions, that Artengo has taken its first steps towards performance and product expertise.

For me, it's more than a partnership, it's really living it 100%, that's what is most important.

The desire to assert itself in the world of high level thus had to materialize through a new striking choice. It was important for the brand to be associated with an authentic, recognized personality and a daring temperament, mingled with an infinite passion for sport beyond even the tennis courts. Gaël Monfils therefore naturally found his place in this partnership. An indisputable French showman who is both unpredictable, endearing and relentlessly hardworking, this figure of world tennis never leaves his audience indifferent and was an obvious choice.

Confidence, proximity and openness: these are the key words of this new collaboration between the brand and the player. Gaël Monfils and Artengo, it is the meeting between two worlds that share the same desire: that of being useful to men and women passionate about tennis.

What is certain is that it is a partnership not based solely on sponsorship, we want to go much further and in particular on the co-creation part. With Gaël, we want 100% collaboration with the team and in particular around the future look of our products.

During the first exchanges between Gaël Monfils and the Artengo team, it was the TR 960 CONTROL TOUR 18x20 racquet that won over the French tennis player. This product, already in the offer, was initially designed for expert tennis players looking for control and precision.
The TR960 Control Tour 18x20 is intended to be an excellent compromise between maneuverability and power, with a thin profile and a flexible frame to keep control of the ball. To mark this collaboration, Gaël Monfils and the Artengo team have worked on a new design for this racket. The general public will be able to discover it during its next matches in Australia, and acquire it in presale from the mid of January on the site.
