About F-ACE

Christo van Rensburg played with the smiley face logo during his professional career and was known as the guy with the smiley face logo.  In 2002, Christo and his wife Monica, created F-ACE to reflect their long time winning attitude. The smiley face logo became F-ACE with a dash to have the double meaning of discribing the “smiley face” and the “ace” as that winning shot in sport. This dynamic duo along with Monica's sister Elna, played on the international pro tennis circuit for 15 years winning in excess of 50 titles between them. They competed in all the majors which included Wimbledon, The French Open, The US Open and The Australian Open.

The F-ACE Brand is dedicated to helping players achieve their personal best and reflect a total winning attitude both on and off of the court and everywhere in between.

Together they bring their positive attitude to you, the CUSTOMER.
