This year, Rolex brand spokespersons Roger Federer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and dozens of celebrity celebrities have witnessed and participated in the fifth anniversary of this celebrity event. Rolex has always been committed to establishing close ties with the Chinese tennis industry, and is committed to supporting its development. The ‘Shanghai Rolex Masters’ is one of the 9 ATP1000 Masters in the world. It is also the top event that enters the Asian Tennis Tournament every year. The champion can get up to 1000 points. Since 2009, with the unremitting support of Rolex, this event has won the ‘Best ATP1000 Event of the Year’ award four times in a row.
This year’s Shanghai Rolex Masters can be described as star-studded, allowing Chinese audiences to fully experience the infinite charm of top tennis events. Rolex specially invited Mr. Rod Laver, an Australian tennis star known as a ‘tennis player’, to join the festivities. He holds the record for the most singles titles in tennis history and has accumulated more than two hundred championship titles in his sports career. He also successfully won the four majors of tennis in 1962 and 1969, becoming the only player in the history of the game to win the Grand Slam twice. Rolex supports the ‘Australian Tennis Open’, and the relationship with the national legend is not just endorsement cooperation. This year, Mr. Lavaux was invited to Shanghai, China for the first time. He said that he was honored to be invited by Rolex this year. Participating in this ‘Shanghai Rolex Masters’, seeing these tennis rookies exert their passion on the court, everything fully shows the strong strength of the competition organizing committee, and is more confident in the future of Chinese tennis.
