3.8 million people in Poland watched the last Grand Slam final of Roland Garros featuring Iga Świątek. This means a record viewership for tennis in our country. We’re witnessing a new social phenomenon. The popularity of tennis in Poland is on the rise, and we’re thrilled about it. Especially since for years, we’ve been contributing our part – we are the title sponsor of the Talex Open tournament.
Competing for the Stakes
This is already the 24th edition of the International Greater Poland Tennis Championships – Talex Open. Over all these years, many great players have participated in the tournament. Just to mention, Hubert Hurkacz and Jerzy Janowicz played their matches here. Maybe this year, among the players, we’ll find the future stars of Polish tennis as well? It’s worth seeing for yourself – Talex Open will start on August 20th and will last for the entire week. All matches take place on the clay courts of AZS Poznań located at 25 Noskowskiego Street.
This year, we’ll see 32 players in singles and 16 doubles pairs. The tennis players will compete for a prize pool of 25 000 dollars and 83 ATP ranking points. The tournament is part of the ITF Futures circuit and is a part of the National Polish Cup – Lotos PZT Polish Tour.
Passion, Health, and Good Fun
We love tennis, and we’re not hiding it. It’s probably evident since we’ve been sponsoring the tournament for so many years that our love for this sport is quite obvious. However, our support stems not only from passion. We’re thinking about promoting a healthy, active lifestyle.
We know how difficult it is to maintain good physical condition. We say this from the perspective of people who’ve spent half their lives with computers. In our case, sports are not just about having fun but also a necessity.
Of course, having fun is important too, which is why we warmly invite you to cheer for the tennis players during Talex Open 2023. It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend pleasant moments with the whole family!
Update – Results
It was truly a successful tournament, and we’re sad to see it come to an end! Throughout the entire week, we were thrilled by the sporting events, culminating in the weekend finals. On Saturday, we got to know the winners in doubles, and on Sunday, the singles final took place.
In the doubles game, the best turned out to be Piotr Matuszewski and the German Kai Wehnelt. In the final, they defeated the Dutch pair of Alexander Jong/Jesse Timmermans 3:6, 7:6, 10:4.
The singles final was unexpected. It featured the Argentine Joaquin Rodriguez and the Ukrainian Georgii Kravchenko, who weren’t considered favorites before the competition began. Through strong play, they earned their way to the final. However, Joaquin Rodriguez proved to be better in the end, winning 5:7, 6:2, 6:1.
This was a great way to wrap up the vacation. We had a fantastic time, and we’re already inviting you to the 25th edition of the tournament in 2024.
