ATP World Tour tennis star James Blake has proven he’s got more than great moves on the tennis court — he’s got style.

High-end sportswear company Fila has just announced its joining forces with Blake to develop a  line of exclusive men’s apparel and footwear, inspired by Blake’s signature look.

The first collaboration of its kind in tennis, Fila and Blake will work together to design tennis, golf, fitness and lifestyle apparel, as well as performance and lifestyle footwear and accessories. The line will incorporate Fila’s heritage with a contemporary twist.

A limited collection will debut just before the 2009 US Open in New York, and the official collection launches Spring/Summer 2010.
