The U.S. Open Tennis Championship came to a close on Sunday, with two Rolex brand testimonees (ambassadors/friends) taking the victory. For the men’s singles, Carlos Alcaraz takes his first Grand Slam Title (becoming the youngest US Open men’s single finalist since 1990), while in the women’s singles, Iga Swiatek won her first US Open and claimed her third career Grand Slam Title. Most recently she won the Roland-Garros Grand Slam Title.
These were big wins, especially considering some big names were knocked out of the finals on the early side this year. But once again, Rolex dominated on and off the court. In addition to these two top winners, other Rolex testimonees participating in the event included Caroline Garcia (who made it to the women’s singles semi-final) and Coco Gauff who reached the quarter finals.
The entire US Open was timed by Rolex, which returned this year as the Official Timekeeper for the 142nd edition. Held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, the US Open is one of the oldest tennis championships in the world. The title timing role for Rolex is one of an ever-expanding foray into the world of tennis. Rolex began its partnership with tennis for The Championships, Wimbledon, in 1978.
