In honor of the 30th anniversary of the brand's Arthur Ashe collection, Le Coq Sportif has unveiled a tribute video to the former Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion. Narrated by French tennis great Yannick Noah, the clip tells the story of Ashe's triumph over early struggles to emerge as the No. tennis player in the world. For Noah, it's a story that circles back to his own career: he was given his very first tennis racket by Ashe in Yaoundé, the capital city of Cameroon, and 11 years later it was Ashe who interviewed Noah after he won the French Open in 1983. Check out the video below, and find the four-piece Arthur Ashe collection in stock now at Le Coq Sportif's online store.
