05/01/07 - Greenville, SC– Dunlop Sports Group has announced the winner of its 2007 Roland Garros French Open Sweepstakes. Steve Rothe of Sioux City, Iowa has won an all expense paid trip for two to attend the 2007 French Open.
Co-sponsored by Tennis Magazine, the grand prize consists of first class round-trip air transportation to Paris, 4-night hotel accommodations, ground transportation and tickets to the 2007 French Open – all valued at approximately $15,000.
Mr. Rothe and his guest will also receive Dunlop Aerogel racquets – acclaimed for their new technology, great touch and feel – plus a variety of Dunlop accessories. While viewing the only grand-slam tournament played on clay at the legendary Roland Garros, they will be able to see Dunlop Aerogel in action as the highly ranked trio of Tommy Haas, Tommy Robredo and Tomas Berdych compete for the coveted title.
“I follow all of the major tennis tournaments, and this trip really caught my eye,” said Rothe, an MRI technician. “I’ve never traveled outside of the U.S., so for me it’s the thrill of a lifetime to be able to go to Paris, enjoy the French Open, and take in the sights.”
As his guest, Rothe plans to bring Elmasue Zylberberg who is a CAT scan technician at the same hospital. In addition to attending the tournament, the close friends said they will do as much sight seeing as possible, planning to hit all the major tourist spots that they can fit into the four day excursion.
“Dunlop has a deep appreciation of the French Open, so it’s very rewarding for us to share this spectacular event with Steve and Elmasue,” said Steve Hall, Dunlop’s Director of Marketing of Racquet Sports. “I’m sure they’ll have a great time, bringing back lasting memories to share with family and friends.”
Dunlop is the official supplier of the Roland Garros French Open.
