With Quay being a Proud Supporter of AO Retail, it is an incredibly proud moment for me, personally, and for the brand."
Tennis has been placed firmly into the spotlight, and while the world is captivated by these leading player’s incredible talents, the fashion industry has also been influenced by the style found both on and off the court.
