We got a chance to talk with Tracy Almeda-Singian, the tour marketing manager for Wilson, about the photoshoot for their Wilson racket campaign that was completed while the players were at the BNP Paribas Open. Check out the interview and some behind-the-scenes photos below. Enjoy!
What was the theme for the photoshoot?
This shoot was to continue to support the Wilson Juice and Steam legality campaign. These videos will be commercials you will see on tv around French Open time.
Which players participated?
Vika Azarenka, Petra Kvitova and Kei Nishikori.
Which player does the best job posing in front of the camera? Who does the worst job?
Honestly, they are all really good in front of the camera. All three players are great in front of camera and are able to bring their personality to the scripts.
Any funny moments during the shoot?
I think it was rather fun to have David, Petra’s coach, involved in the shoot. He plays a part in her video which is pretty cool.... We started calling him DeNiro after that.
How long does the photoshoot take?
It started at 7am and ended at 6pm.
Did Kei get his hair and makeup done?
No makeup for the guys, just stylized the hair.
Did he mind it, or seem to enjoy it?
Who doesn’t love a little pampering?!
