German tennis player Julia Görges is the latest brand ambassador for Rado watches.
The announcement came at the European launch of the Rado HyperChrome collection in Berlin. Görges took part in a special performance for guests during the event, playing tennis in the dark under UV light. She used a glowing neon racquet and tennis ball and wore specially adapted clothing to create an exciting display.
Görges is currently ranked 19th in the world and has twice defeated a reigning world number one. "[She] is highly talented and has a natural style making her a perfect fit for Rado," the brand says. She was presented with a white HyperChrome model by Rado CEO Matthias Breschan.
Fellow Rado ambassador Andy Murray has also helped to promote the HyperChrome collection, attending the launch event in China. Murray was presented with two Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph watches, one black and one white, each engraved in honour of his recent Olympic and US Open title wins.
Rado has supported a number of tennis events during 2012, providing official timekeeping at the AEGON Championships at London's Queen's Club; the Unicredit Czech Open in the Czech Republic; the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur; the Rakuten Open in Japan; Erste Bank Open Vienna 2012 in Austria; and the Kremlin Cup by Bank of Moscow in Russia. Rado is also an official partner of 'Open Court', a television programme dedicated to tennis shown on CNN.
