DUNLOP CELEBRATES FOUR FINALISTS AT THE WIMBLEDON CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

July 15, 2018 – (Leatherhead, U.K.) Coming under a new ownership in April 2017, Dunlop players reached the Wimbledon Finals with superstar KEVIN ANDERSON’s thrilling run to the Men’s Singles Finals by beating Roger Federer in the quarter-finals and John Isner in the semi-finals. In the finals, he played against Novak Djokovic in an exciting game of 2-6, 2-6, 6-7 (3-7).

The 32-year-old South African used the Dunlop CX 2.0 Tour LE racket on the road to his Wimbledon Finals match, the same racket he played on his way to the 2017 U.S. Open Finals. With him beating highly ranked players and reaching the Finals, Anderson moves to a career high ranking of No 5 in the world.

“Since he began as an ambassador for our company, we’ve seen Kevin’s game grow at a meteoric pace, and although he wasn’t able to win today, this trip to the Wimbledon final is still a testament to all his hard work and dedication,” said Masahiro Asahino, CEO of Dunlop International Europe Ltd. “As a company, we share those same values, and it’s our mission to continually improve our products and set new standards in the tennis industry.”

Another Dunlop Tennis superstar, YUJI KAMIJI, won her fifth straight Women’s Doubles title in the wheelchair event at Wimbledon this year. This win adds to her Australian Open Doubles and French Open Singles titles earlier this year, using her Dunlop CX 4.0 racket.

JAMIE MURRAY was unable to defend his Wimbledon Mixed Doubles title, losing 6-7, 3-6 in the Finals. He uses the Dunlop CX 2.0 racket.

Dunlop D Squad 16-year old Junior JACK DRAPER excelled in the Boys’ Singles at Wimbledon this year, going all the way to reach his first Wimbledon Finals. In a tightly fought match, he narrowly lost out to the No 1 seed Chun Hsin Tseng 1-6, 7-6, 4-6. Jack uses the new Dunlop CV 3.0 F Tour racket.
