Windsor Hoteis chain is one of the supporters of the 10th edition of Rio Open

Windsor Hotels Network is supporting the Rio Open, the biggest tennis tournament in South America, which turns 10 years old in 2024. This year's edition will be held until February 25th, at the Jockey Club Brasileiro, and has already begun to be celebrated by the event organizers with the launch of a manifesto and a special seal. In addition, there will be a wheelchair contest for the first time.

The manifesto, which has its video version narrated by journalist Flávia Oliveira, highlights the different facets of the tournament over the years: the highlights of the international stars on the court, the countless champions recognized in the games and the national and international reach of the competition, which has already taken more than 600 thousand fans to the stands. Furthermore, also to celebrate the event's anniversary, the 10-year commemorative stamp will be part of the Rio Open 2024 identity.

The Rio Open, one of the 13 ATP 500 level championships on the international calendar in 2024, begins in a special way with its line-up. The competition, played on clay courts, will feature three Grand Slam champions. Heading the list of international stars is Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, winner of the US Open in 2022 and Wimbledon in 2023. The former number 1 in the world rankings will play the Rio Open for the fourth time in his career, being a finalist in the last two editions. Champion in 2022 and runner-up last year, the 20-year-old tennis player will try to win his second title in Rio de Janeiro.

Held for the first time on February 15, 2014, also at the Jockey Club, the Rio Open will have an unprecedented international wheelchair tennis tournament, from February 22 to 24. Wheelchair Tennis Elite will bring together athletes from Brazil, Japan and Great Britain, who are part of the world's elite in the sport.

“We are extremely happy for the opportunity to support the 10th anniversary edition of the Rio Open. The event, in itself, is already very traditional and important for Rio de Janeiro, having a great contribution to the city's economy and tourism. However, the 2024 edition is even more special, as it will feature, for the first time, an international wheelchair tennis competition. This action demonstrates the tournament's concern with accessibility and inclusion of people with disabilities, and the Windsor Hoteis Network is proud to support projects that not only realize the importance of the topic, but also take effective measures to support these groups”, highlights Vitor Almeida, Marketing Manager at Rede Windsor.

In addition to the competitions, the 10th edition of the Rio Open will also feature Leblon Boulevard, a vibrant space that goes far beyond gastronomic delights, a true entertainment center, where visitors can explore the stands of sponsors and brands that support the event.
