Lacoste Renews Contract With Daniil Medvedev Until 2026

Daniil Medvedev has signed a 5-year extension of his contract with Lacoste that runs until 2026. Medvedev also plays with Tecnifibre racquets and strings. Tecnifibre is owned by Lacoste as well.

Though a grand slam title has eluded Medvedev so far, he reached the US Open final in 2019 and has won three Masters titles.

Lacoste is a French brand founded by tennis player René Lacoste and André Gillier. The company also sponsors top-ranked Novak Djokovic. Medvedev is represented by talent agency IMG.
