Purps Welcomes Nicole Gibbs
Purps is excited to team up with professional tennis player, and former Stanford All-American Nicole Gibbs.
“We are stoked to partner with Gibbsy,” said the Purps founders. “She is a phenomenal athlete and inspirational role model that lives and breathes the brand ethos. We are lucky to have her on the team.”
As a former Stanford All-American, and 2 time NCAA Singles Champion, Nicole has already made a huge splash on the professional world tour. In Indian Wells, CA she pushed top 10 player, Petra Kvitova, to a three-set thriller in the round of 16, having already defeated world No. 23 Madison Keys along the way. She continued her good form in Miami by again defeating a world top 30 player and reaching the third round, where she faced world No. 4 Garbiñe Muguruza. As a testament to her early success on tour, Nicole earned the WTA's ‘Breakthrough Performance of the Month’ for March 2016 receiving an overwhelming 60% of the votes. Nicole is certainly moving up the ranks quickly and solidifying her foundation as a quintessential role model for excellence and a healthy lifestyle.
"I am thrilled to begin my partnership with Purps, a brand that shares my passion for healthy, active lifestyles. I have been using Purps products on and off the court for the past year and have seen a significant improvement in my overall health and performance on tour. As the newest Purps advocate, I can't wait to help the brand grow and expand into the tennis market. Plus as a SoCal girl, I love (and live) its fresh, surfer lifestyle appeal, so I’m really excited to be a part of the team.” – Nicole Gibbs
