US Tennis Star Sloane Stephens Set as Newest Global Ambassador for Mercedes-Benz
As a tennis star, Sloane Stephens has been conquering the court with wins at the 2017 U.S. Open and the Miami Open as well as a runner-up finish at the 2018 French Open. Now she’s stepping off the court for a minute to support Mercedes-Benz, the official vehicle sponsor of the 2018 U.S. Open. As the newest global ambassador of Mercedes-Benz, Stephens will represent the automaker’s philosophy of “best or nothing.” In her new role, the tennis ace receives the impressive 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 S Coupe.
“I am absolutely honored to be a part of the Mercedes-Benz global family,” Stephens said. “Mercedes-Benz is constantly raising the bar in the automotive industry, which is similar to how I approach tennis. We both want to perform at the highest level and be the best in the world.”
Previous athletes to partner with Mercedes-Benz as global ambassadors include Rickie Fowler, Roger Federer, and Lewis Hamilton.
“Sloane Stephens is the perfect athlete to represent the Mercedes-Benz brand globally,” said Monique Harrison, Department Head of Brand Experience Marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “She has emerged as a powerhouse in the world of tennis, and has her sights set on being the best. We are excited to see her strive for greatness and help grow the game. At such a young age, she has already proven to be a star, making her an ideal fit for our brand.”
