US OPEN WINNER TO GET A LEXUS?!

Why not an American car, wtf?

I guess Lexus makes good stuff but it's not Mercedes. Where's GM? Weren't they the usual sponsor?



For the first time ever, the US Open Men's Singles Champion will be awarded an all-new 2006 Lexus GS 430. Tennis and automotive aficionados alike can view the GS 430 up close and in person on the grounds of the US Open. This athletic vehicle is a champion on any surface with a powerful V8 engine, standard 18-inch wheels and performance tires. It's the ideal sport sedan for the driver who demands the precise fusion of power and control.



Later this year, Lexus will be releasing the all-new IS. And as an Official

Sponsor of the 2005 US Open, Lexus is proud to offer US Open.org newsletter subscribers access to the IS prelaunch site. You are also invited to sign up for communications about Lexus concept vehicles, technological innovations and other privileged information.

Well that's a good question but an easy answer. The Atp is nothing...lol. The slams are their own seperate group and they do whatever they want. The slams could take over tennis if they wanted. So slams have their own sponsors, ad campagins etc., they just chose to co-operate and use the ATPs ranking system. I wish all the organizations would just join together.

Re: US OPEN WINNER TO GET A LEXUS?!

The previous sponsor was Lincoln-Mercury.
Yes, Mercedes sponsors the men, and I think Porsche may still sponsor the women, but the Slams are allowed to do whatever they want.
Lexus makes better, longer lasting cars than Mercedes-Benz, in my opinion (and based on the JD Power consumer satisfaction survey).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I don´t know how it works with slams, but there are ATP tournaments that are sponsored by others..... For example, Barcelona is sponsored by Seat and there are no Mercedes logos anywhere in the courts.
I know there is at least other tournament more, but I can´t remember it right now....

Car is always good - Nalby needs another one for his fleet and I'm sure he hasn't got a Lexus already

Re: US OPEN WINNER TO GET A LEXUS?!

The Mercedes deal is with the ATP tour and they extend that deal to some, but not all of the tournaments (San Jose uses Mercedes cars, but I've heard that Memphis does not). Must be some provisions of the contract that allow this to happen and I think it may be based on their exposure in each particular area where a tournament is held. The last few years at San Jose there has been a rumor that MB is pulling out because their sales in the bay area are declining (but then we show up for the meeting and all of the cars are there, so who knows).
