Press Release n° 1 -

 
The Tournament Committee announced that ROLEX, the renowned brand in Swiss Horology, has confirmed its commitment to the prestigious Monaco tennis event by becoming the title sponsor of the Masters Series Monte Carlo. The Tournament will hitherto be referred to as the “MONTE CARLO ROLEX MASTERS”.

“It is a means of reinforcing our close collaboration, and we are delighted!” declared Madame Elizabeth-Ann de Massy, President of the Tournament Committee. “We are particularly proud that ROLEX, one of the most renowned companies in the world has accepted to strengthen its collaboration with one of the most prestigious sports events in the Principality of Monaco”.

“Our partnership with ROLEX since 2006 has enabled to grow the level of the Masters Series Monte Carlo”, added Zeljko Franulovic, the Tournament Director. “The 2008 edition saw the historic participation of the four top world players in the semi-finals (Roger Federer, Rafaël Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Nikolay Davydenko). We reached a record number of over 116,000 spectators and had more than 2,000 hours broadcast on the five continents. Our event fully lived up to its status as one of the elite world tournaments and will as a result remain among the top nine Masters 1000 Tournaments as of 2009”, asserted Zeljko Franulovic.

Rendez-vous Saturday 11th April to Sunday 19th April for another edition of the MONTE CARLO ROLEX MASTERS that will be able to seat an even great number of spectators thanks to the creation of an additional stand on the Centre Court, and the enlarging of the stands on the annex courts, thus creating a further 3000 seats available each day. Ticket sales will start at the beginning of October 2008 (www.smett.mc).
