Dunlop will have a prominent presence at the Mutua Madrid Open again this year, with the Dunlop Fort Clay Court being the official ball of the tournament. The agreement is part of Dunlop’s commitment to the European clay court tour beginning in Monte Carlo with the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters. Dunlop and the Mutua Madrid Open thus extend their relationship in a very special edition, to celebrate the tenth anniversary at the Magic Box. The Dunlop Fort, flagship of the brand, is once again the ball of choice in Madrid.
Dunlop will be Official Ball not only in Madrid and Monte Carlo, but also in the ATP Masters 1000 in Rome, the ATP 500 Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, and the ATP 250 tournaments in Estoril, Munich and Budapest.
All these tournaments are played with the ball Dunlop Fort Clay Court, evolution of the iconic Dunlop Fort All Court, developed specifically for elite tennis on clay with Dunlop’s guarantee of the highest quality offered and incorporating the exclusive Clay Guard technology to ensure optimal performance of the ball for longer on clay.
With this series of sponsorship agreements, Dunlop is confirmed as the Official Ball of the most prestigious European clay court tournaments, reinforces its position as the leading tennis balls brand in Europe and promotes internationally the flagship model Dunlop Fort .
At the same time Dunlop has reinforced its commitment to professional tournaments around the world with new agreements as Official Ball of the ATP Masters 1000 Shanghai and ATP 250 New York, confirming its global commitment to elite tennis on all surfaces.
All these events also allow the brand to present its latest developments in rackets and accessories, with the new Dunlop-Srixon rackets as the stand-out series for the 2018 season. The new rackets combine the history and know-how of Dunlop with the technology and precision of Srixon, and they are already in the hands of Dunlop Team players Kevin Anderson, Jamie Murray, Donald Young, Aga Radwanska and Zarina Diyas.
