The Roland-Garros Opening Party presented by Rolex held recently at New Delhi’s Imperial Hotel and attended by legendary tennis star and Rolex Testimonee Vijay Amritraj was an occasion to celebrate the two brands’ new alliance.
This forms a part of a series of such events which are being held in Brazil, China and India, just a few weeks before the Grand Slam begins providing a special platform for announcing the new collaboration between these two brands and officially launching the 2019 Roland-Garros season.
Brazil got the ball rolling on May 8, in the residence of the French consul in São Paulo. Gustavo Kuerten, a three-time winner of Roland-Garros and the Grand Slam’s ambassador since 2018, attended the event. The series then moved to China attended by Li Na, representing Rolex, as well as Jin Dong, who has been Roland-Garros’ ambassador in China since the last two years. And its final leg was held on May 22 in India today before kicking off the season.
Beside Amritraj, it was attended by Wolfgang Weilbach, General Manager, Rolex India and Lucas Dubourg, Head of International Development, French Federation of Tennis.
Speaking on the occasion, Amritraj said, “Roland-Garros has always been one of the pinnacle tournaments and their partnership with Rolex is a great marriage of brands which exude the same DNA of excellence. I am happy to be a part of this event in India celebrating their new association. I also look forward to some stellar performances as we launch the 2019 Roland-Garros season.”
