"When you work well and harmoniously together as a team, you will be able to achieve ambitious goals – both on the tennis court and in life more generally. I’m absolutely delighted with the positive experiences I’ve had with my cooperation partners so far and look forward to our future projects!"
Andreas Mies started playing tennis at the age of six and since then has been putting his trust in rackets made by Wilson. As a tennis professional, he is officially being equipped with rackets, strings, and racket bags by the US-American manufacturer.
The Italian traditional brand reliably equips Andreas Mies from head to toe with the entire wardrobe he requires on the court. All the caps, sweat bands, shirts, shorts, track pants, socks and shoes Andreas Mies wears when he is playing are made by Lotto Sport Italia. Also for free-time and leisure activities, Andreas Mies always finds casual wear and sports clothing at Lotto to suit his tastes.
As a partner of Olympia Team Germany, EDEKA collaborates with Andreas Mies. Food and sports go hand in hand. As a proven expert on nutrition, EDEKA is the ideal partner for athletes and for all those who aim to follow a balanced diet and engage in sports. EDEKA has been a partner of Olympia Team Germany since 2016, supporting the athletes on their path to the Olympic Games and teaming up with them to provide incentives and inspiration for everyone to pursue a balanced diet. For whether in everyday life, at work, in amateur or competitive sports: a balanced diet consisting of high-quality foods provides the basis for general physical fitness and performance.
It is no secret that Andreas Mies loves his native city of Cologne and so he gladly takes part in “Your Voice for Cologne”, a campaign initiated by the private brewery Gaffel. Many local VIPs joined up for this project to promote their city: e.g. sports commentator legend Sven Pistor, comedians Carolin Kebekus and Johann König, the band Brings, Bastian Campmann of the band Kasalla, and many more.
Special Olympics NRW
Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organisation for children and adults with intellectual or multiple disabilities and is officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee. Around the world, more than five million athletes in 174 countries are actively involved in this programme.
Andreas Mies: “I’ve been deeply impressed with the joyful enthusiasm and the athletic ambition these children and adults with intellectual disabilities show when they compete with each other. From my own experience, I know how much fun it is to engage in sports and to participate in sporting events as an athlete. Because I was a healthy kid, my mother could just enrol me at the tennis club round the corner to make me happy. But for someone with intellectual disabilities the situation is completely different, and it is much more difficult to find suitable sports facilities. That’s why it’s fantastic that Special Olympics addresses precisely this problem. I hope that in my capacity as Tennis Ambassador for Special Olympics North Rhine-Westphalia I’ll be able to draw even more attention to the work of this sports organisation and the opportunities on offer, and above all to the athletes involved. It would be great if this could provide an incentive to sustainably establish even more sports groups for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, in particular in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia.”
This German-language tennis magazine has been a staple since 1976 and makes for highly enjoyable reading for both the ambitious hobby player and the avid fan of the professional tour. In March 2020, Andreas Mies wrote his first column for the tennis magazine.
