Toronto, Canada, September 07, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex is proud to be an official sponsor of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie between Canada and Netherlands, being held at the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto from September 14-16, 2018.
This is the fourth Davis Cup clash between the two nations - but their first in over 14 years. Netherlands won their last contest, prevailing 4-1 in a World Group first round tie on home soil in Maastricht in 2004, but Canada won the previous two bouts in 1969 and 1990. Both nations are looking to preserve their World Group status for 2019 after each suffered 3-1 first round defeats on away soil - Canada going down to Croatia and Netherlands losing to reigning champions France.
As part of the sponsorship, Bloomex will be providing all florals for team locker rooms, the President’s Box and courtside area, the VIP Lounge, guest hotel rooms and the Official Draw as the events take place throughout the week.
“Bloomex is delighted to sponsor a second Canadian Davis Cup tie,” says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex. “Canada is proud to have some of the strongest tennis players in the world. We look forward to welcoming the Netherlands and to some exciting matches in Toronto.”
This Davis Cup match also marks the last match for Canadian tennis great, Daniel Nestor. Nestor was the first player in either singles or doubles, to win a title at all four Grand Slams, all nine ATP Masters 1000 events, the ATP Finals and an Olympic Gold medal. He spent 108 weeks as the #1 doubles player in the world, amassing 91 titles, including 8 Grand Slams. He was inducted into the Canadian Tennis Hall of Fame earlier this month.
