Now, Coco isn’t just a tennis sensation; she’s also a deal-making queen. Back when she was a teen, she was already locking in contracts with big names like Barilla and New Balance. And this year? Brace yourselves because she teamed up with the likes of Bose, UPS, Rolex, Baker Tilly, and even The Marvel movie. Yep, you heard it right – she’s taking the court and the big screen!

And here’s the kicker – she’s got her own signature tennis sneaker with New Balance, making her the only active tennis player rocking that title across all brands. Now, that’s some serious shoe game.
